Mr. Patel

Bharat Patel PE, LEED AP, CEM

Location: California
Online only

My name is Bharat Patel and I will be teaching Mechanical Engineering for the ARE. I have a passion for the subject matter and like to depart my knowledge so others can benefit from my experiences and technical expertise. For the past 30 years, I have taught and continue to teach at various Universities both in a classroom setting and online.  Online teaching provides me with the convenience and flexibility that I require. My engineering career has taken me around the world working with world renowned architects that include Sir Richard Rogers, Renzo Piano, Sir Norman Foster, and have taken me to countries that include UK, France, Middle East, France, Sweden and North America.

I currently live in the California with my family

When I am not working I am helping my son who is autistic in life skills so when I am not around he can cope with life.
