Job Description:

Engineering Instructors

Institution

The Wade Institute of Technology (WIT) is a new Palo Alto-based engineering college with a focus on mitigating the acute underrepresentation of African Americans and students of African descent in the engineering ecosystem. We are seeking a cohort of faculty (3) and students (10) to design a 2-year integrated masters degree curriculum starting in September 2022 as a Design Year. Our vision is Engineering for Everyone. Our curriculum will be aligned with the requirements to satisfy future accreditation.

Program

The Design Year will use foundational principles and frameworks to develop a 24-month student-centric curriculum for the next academic years. We are recruiting students with undergraduate degrees in STEM disciplines and humanities, art, and social sciences. Experiential learning projects will be central to students learning.

Regular Program

Our Integrated Engineering program will follow the Design Year and will constitute a broad, non-specialized engineering education. Rather than earning a degree in only one specific area of engineering, students will gain background in core areas such as materials, chemical, mechanical, electrical disciplines, project management, and leadership. In addition to the core areas of study, students may select concentration credits of technical electives. The program will emphasize engineering design through experiential learning in space studies, watershed and atmospheric environmental engineering, precision agriculture, and autonomous aviation.

Our program is a multi-disciplinary and project-based engineering masters degree. It is intended to meet the demand for engineers skilled in various disciplines, combining aspects from traditional engineering studies and liberal arts. The demand arises from the current state of industry, where both the products manufactured and the plants which make the products are progressing towards greater diversity and sophistication. The experiential learning projects will provide analytical and computational levels of resolutions and modeling. The intent is to develop students with the ability to build, tune and interpret math models.

Our program is a major thrust in engineering education to ensure the breadth of learning beyond the technical aspects of the specialist engineering discipline. The student-centric curriculum will emphasize problem-solving, design, and the development of the learning skills of students.

Integrated engineers acquire background in core disciplines such as materials, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and systems involving chemical, electro-mechanical, and biological components. That is layered to include leadership, project management, and communications skills.

If you are excited about being able to shape the future of engineering education at the graduate level, join us!

Applying

WIT invites applicants to join us in creating novel programs. The full-time positions start on July 18, 2022 for one academic year but most likely will continue thereafter. The salary range is based upon a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, education, experience, specialty, and training.

These positions offer the opportunity to lead curriculum development, instruction, assessment, and planning while collaborating with staff, students, employers, and university contacts to ensure the curriculum is aligned with the requirements to satisfy future accreditation. Successful applicants will attend a Studio Workshop with Frank Olin College of Engineering in Needham, MA between July 18, 2022, and July 22, 2022, via Zoom, for training in designing and instruction of integrated engineering education.

Salary: $63,444 - $110,839.

Apply by: July 31, 2022

Preference will be given to applications received by 17th July.
