Dr Andrew Calcutt is the 'hackademic' (former journalist turned academic) who left Channel Cyberia (one of the earliest online magazines in the UK) to set up the University of East London's first journalism programme (BA Journalism and Print Media.) His academic career is as old as UEL's Docklands Campus, which opened in 1999.
