He was apprenticed to the Parsons Company of Newcastle upon Tyne at the age of 16 and attended Armstrong College (later incorporated into Newcastle University).

This work began in 1937-38 and continued during World War II.[2] He was Professor of Engineering and head of the Department. of Electrical Engineering at the University of Birmingham from 1947 to 1955 and at Imperial College London from 1955 to 1964 and a Visiting Professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1953-54.[2] Work Tustin's primary concern has been in the field of electrical machines, but his interests was much wider in the fields of systems thinking, control systems, and even economics and biology.[3] Quotes When beliefs need some modification, we make it with much trepidation, for our world is then new, and things seem all askew, ‘til we’re used to the new formulation.
