Personal profile


Dr Temitope Olumide Olugbade is a Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, School of Science and Engineering, University of Dundee. Under the sponsorship of Alexander von Humboldt (AvH) foundation, he had his postdoctoral experience/industrial research, at the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM), Berlin, Germany (2021 – 2023). He graduated with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering (funded by the Hong Kong Ph.D. Fellowship Scheme, HKPFS), specializing in mechanical and corrosion properties of nanostructured materials, from the City University of Hong Kong (CityU), Hong Kong SAR, PR China in 2020. Prior to this, he obtained his BEng (First-Class honors) and MEng (Distinction) degrees in Mechanical Engineering in 2011 and 2014, respectively.


I am currently teaching the following modules:

ME31001 – Engineering Materials

ME40004 – Solid Mechanics and Materials

ME12001 – Thermodynamics

ME22001 – Manufacturing Project

ME32003 – Engineering Design II

ME40005 – Mechanical Engineering Honors Project

ME53001 – Engineering Project and Report (Industrial Placement)


My research centers on questions on why and how the mechanical industry and the materials science and engineering can be made more efficient, less problem-ridden, and sustainable; and to understand how the application of surface nanocrystallization can be employed to facilitate nanostructured layers productivity and collaboration, and mechanical behaviour of nanostructured materials. To a large extent, the research attention is currently on the corrosion properties of nanostructured and coated metallic materials, alloys, polymers, most especially in aggressive environments. Some of the projects include:

(1) Developing a Corrosion-Resistant Twinning-Induced Plasticity (TWIP) Steel

(2) Metallurgy and Corrosion Behaviors of Carbon Steel

(3) Multi-layered Organic Coatings and their Nanocomposites for corrosion protection
