Ikeya Uria

Job Role
Senior Lecturer in Engineering (Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics)


With an undergraduate in Industrial & Mechanical Engineering, I worked both in industry and in academia in different countries (Spain, Slovakia and El Salvador) for a number of years. After these experiences, I decided to pursue further education related to aeronautics, my passion. I undertook a MSc in Aeronautical Engineering and worked in HE in the UK for a few years before joining WGU in 2018. My hobbies are anything to do with flying: from kites to scaled model aircrafts.
