Prof. Paul Krause Professor of Software Engineering, University of Surrey

Paul Krause is Professor of Software Engineering at the University of Surrey. Prior to moving to his full-time Professorship in 2003, he was a Senior Principle Scientist at Philips Electronics. During his time at Philips he consulted widely with their global software development teams in Bruges, Eindhoven, Vienna, Bangalore and Singapore. He also wrote and delivered training courses on a wide range of advanced software development techniques both to individual teams and at the Global Philips Software Conference.

Since moving to the University of Surrey, his teaching has focused on Web Technologies. He teaches at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate level, with his courses always receiving very strong scores in the student feedback. He uses many of the technologies he teaches in his research work, ensuring that his taught material is both up to date and full of practical insights. During the last 13 years he has delivered introductory, intermediate and advanced level courses on: Java, Ruby on Rails, JavaScript (including Node.js, jQuery and Angular.js) and Behaviour Driven Development.

Prof. Krause was one of the authors of the first versions of the British Computer Society’s Information System Examination Board’s Foundation and Practioner’s Software Testing syllabuses. He is Editor (Computing and Software) of the Institute of Engineering and Technology’s Journal of Engineering, and a Guest Mentor at Coding House, CA.

He has travelled widely in Europe, Africa and Asia both for pleasure and for work. This has given him a broader perspective than just the technical aspects of his work, and this is also reflected in some of his Udemy courses.
