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.
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
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
If you are excited about being able to shape the future of
engineering education at the graduate level, join us!
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
Salary: $63,444 - $110,839.
