Emmanuel Enyioma Anyanwu, Ph.D joined the faculty at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri in 1990 and is currently a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Dean of the School of Engineering and Engineering Technology SEET. He has continually contributed to Mechanical Engineering through teaching and creative research activities in absorption/ adsorption solar refrigeration, solar systems for residential buildings, bioreactors to produce biofuels from wastes, among others; and provision of academic leadership at different levels in the University.

Todate, Prof. Anyanwu has graduated ten(10) Ph.D students. Many of them hold senior tenure positions in Universities and Industries; one is a Director /CEO. of Projects Development Institute, Enugu, Nigeria.

Prof. Anyanwu has published more than 70 Scientific Papers: Including about 40 articles in archival journals, seven chapters in books and others in referred conference proceedings.

He is a fellow of the Nigerian Society of Engineers, FNSE, and has served the society variously as a member of Codes and Standards committee (2010-2011), Engineer of the Year Award Committee (2010-2012) and 2012 Annual NSE Conference Technical Comiittee and registered by the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN). He is also Fellow of the Solar Energy Society of Nigeria, FSESN and currently serves on the Board of Fellows of the Society.

An ASME member, Prof. Anyanwu received (with Dr. N.V. Ogueke) an award of the Best Paper in 2005 ASME Conference (Solar Heating and Cooling Track) held at Orlando Florida, USA.

Prof. Anyanwu received his bachelors and Masters degrees in Engineering Physics (Nuclear Option) and Mechanical Engineering (Applied Energy) from the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University) Ile-Ife, Nigeria and the Cranfield Institute of Technology (now Cranfield University), England in 1981 and 1986 respectively. He earned his Ph.D in Mechnical Engineering from University of Nigeria, Nsukka in 1997.
