Dr. Martin Benson, a Mechanical Engineer, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in mechanical engineering and engineering research.

Dr. Benson obtained a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from the University of Sydney in 1959 and later continued his education with a Master of Engineering from the University of Wollongong in 1978. He continued his education with a Doctor of Philosophy in flammability limits and related phenomena from the University of Papua New Guinea in Port Moseby in 1996.

After excelling as an engineer from 1959 to 1978 with Lysaght, a firm manufacturing coated steel building products, Dr. Benson imparted his knowledge as a lecturer, department head and chairman of board studies from 1978 to 1984 and a senior lecturer from 1985 to 1999 with Lae Technical College, a part of the University of Papua New Guinea, from 1985 to 1999.

While with Lysaght, Dr. Benson’s major innovation came in the area of continuous-strip paint lines, where solvent-air mixtures had to be maintained below the flammability temperature limit. He obtained a patent to change the operation of the coater room, maintaining a safe temperature. Dr. Benson has been honored with selection for editions of Who’s Who in Science and engineering and Who’s Who in the World.

Dr. Benson was associated with a missionary group when he moved to Papua New Guinea in the 1980s. His main responsibility at the PNG University of Technology was to teach engineering, but he also participated in missionary activity, and the missionaries asked him to help them with their work and he contributed more than 130 Bible lessons. While continuing his religious work, Dr. Benson is continuing with engineering research and hopes to be thought of for his dedication and perseverance.
