Godwin is currently a lecturer and research lead for Automobile Engineering research and teaching at the Mechanical Engineering Department of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). He holds an MSc degree in Automobile engineering from Kingston University, London since 2009 with a specialization in electric vehicles. At Kingston University, he studied the effect of energy storage and vehicle architecture on fuel consumption of hybrid-electric vehicles as part of his thesis. Godwin completed a Ph.D. and BSc in Mechanical Engineering from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana in 2016 and 2005 respectively.
Godwin's Ph.D. thesis was based on the effect of biodiesel-biodiesel fuel mixture on engine performance. He has since undergone extensive training on electric vehicle planning by Pmanifold in India where Godwin studied how to plan, maintain, purchase and project the total cost of operation of any electric vehicle fleet. With regards to vehicle standards, Godwin is the current Chairman of the Technical Committee on Vehicle Standards and Homologation for Ghana Standards Authority. This committee developed the 26 vehicle standards for M1, M2, and N1 vehicles being used in Ghana today. Godwin is also a member (expert consultant) of the Technical Committee (TC 59) of the African Organization for Standardization (ARSO). The TC 59 has harmonized vehicle standards in Africa. I had the privilege of developing the petrol and diesel fuel standard for Africa.
Godwin has provided short-term consultancy services for the E4D VET TOOLBOX project for GIZ on two separate projects in 2018 and 2019. In this project, he worked with industry stakeholders and international experts from Germany to develop skills gap analysis for the Automobile Industry in Ghana. His core expertise includes electric vehicles (e-mobility), engine performance including emissions with several publications to his credit. Godwin has strong leadership abilities honed as head of the department, dean, project leader, and in many other international capacities.
