Lecturer-Introduction to Engineering

Commensurate with experience

LECTURER – Introduction to Engineering

The Henry Samueli School of Engineering may have need for one or more temporary lecturers to teach the following course in the Interdisciplinary Studies Program during the fall and winter quarter of the 2017-18 academic year.

Introduction to Engineering I-II (ENG 7A-B) is a two-quarter lower-division course for students with freshman or sophomore standing in Engineering. This interdisciplinary course focuses on two aspects: introducing different engineering disciplines and teaching fundamental engineering design principles and processes to first-year students. The students will work on a highly multidisciplinary project in a team setting: designing, building and testing a remote-control quadcopter with an autonomous task through essential engineering skills including Computer Aided Design (CAD) modeling, programming and mechanical and electrical fabrication. Students will experience a real-world product development process through planning, research, design, manufacturing and evaluation of the assigned project. Each student will be assigned to work in a team of five to seven and will be responsible for evaluation of oneself and teammates. Each team will learn and prepare technical memos, reports and presentations during the course. We will also encourage interaction of students with engineering companies by inviting guest speakers and alumni to discuss current engineering trends and challenges in class.


Ph.D. in Engineering received prior to the start of the position or an M.S. in Engineering with equivalent experience

Experience in teaching a similar course is highly desirable

Familiar with SolidWorks, C Programming, mechanical and electrical fabrication

Excellent technical communication skills
