CE, EE, ME Teaching Opportunities

UMSL/WashU Joint Engineering Program - St. Louis, MO




The UMSL/Washington University Joint Engineering Program has several openings for teaching civil, mechanical and electrical engineering courses in Summer and Fall 2024.  Please let us know if you are interested and forward this to any colleagues that you think might be interested. A master of science in electrical or mechanical engineering, or the equivalent, and experience in the area of the course are required; see below for more information regarding expectations.

 

The courses needing instructors are:

 

SU24

  1. JCE 3360 (Civil Engineering Materials Lab): SU24, 1 SCH, W 7-9 PM, 6/10-8/2/24.  Prerequisites: J M ENGR 2410 and Civil Engineering major. This course and J M ENGR 3360 should be taken concurrently. Testing procedures, testing machines, use of laboratory equipment, analysis of data, and presentation of results. Laboratory tests on static tension, compression, bending, and torsion of metal specimens. Tests on wood. Determination of compressive and tensile strengths of concrete. Design of concrete mixes and verification of strength. Experiments in advanced topics in mechanics of materials.

  2. JCE 4740 (Economic Decisions in Engineering): SU24, 3 SCH, MWF 4-830 PM, 5/20-6/7/24.  Same as J M ENGR 4730. Prerequisites: Civil Engineering major, Electrical Engineering major or Mechanical Engineering major. This course examines the principles of economics involved in engineering decisions. It looks at decisions between alternatives based on the efficient allocation of resources. Topics include the time element in economics, analytical techniques for economic studies and taxes.

  3. JME 4630 (Nanotechnology Concepts and Applications): SU24, 3 SCH, TR 4-615 PM, 5/20-7/12/24.  Prerequisites: Mechanical Engineering major. The aim of this course is to introduce to students the general meaning, terminology and ideas behind nanotechnology and its potential application in various industries. The topics covered will include nanoparticles - properties, synthesis and applications, carbon nanotubes - properties, synthesis and applications, ordered and disordered nanostructured materials and their applications, quantum wells, wires and dots, catalysis and self-assembly, polymers and biological materials, nanoelectronics and nanophotonics, nanomanufacturing and functional nano-devices, health effects and nanotoxicity etc.

 

FL24: 8/26-12/18/24

  1. JCE 4740 (Economic Decisions in Engineering): FL24, 3 SCH, MW 4-520 PM.  Same as J M ENGR 4730. Prerequisites: Civil Engineering major, Electrical Engineering major or Mechanical Engineering major. This course examines the principles of economics involved in engineering decisions. It looks at decisions between alternatives based on the efficient allocation of resources. Topics include the time element in economics, analytical techniques for economic studies and taxes.

  2. JEE 2340.01-.02 (Electrical Laboratory for Mechanical Engineers): FL24, 1 SCH, (01) M 530-730 PM/(02) M 8-10 PM.  Prerequisites: J E ENGR 2300 (may be taken concurrently) and Mechanical Engineering major. Laboratory in introductory electrical circuits and devices of relevance to mechanical engineers.

  3. JEE 4350.01/A (Electrical Energy Laboratory): FL24, 3 SCH, T 530-10 PM.  Prerequisites: J E ENGR 2330 and Electrical Engineering major. Experimental studies of principles important in modern electrical energy systems. Topics: power measurement, transformers, batteries, static frequency converters, thermoelectric cooling, solar cells, electrical lighting, induction, commutator, and brushless motors, synchronous machines.

  4. JEE 4520 (Power Systems Analysis): FL24, 3 SCH, TR 4-520 PM.  Prerequisites: J E ENGR 3320 and Electrical Engineering major. Introduction to the modeling and elements of power systems; machines, lines, and loads; load flow methods and applications; short circuit analysis using symmetrical components on symmetrical and asymmetrical faults; methods of economic operation of power systems and contingency; state estimators, stability, and introduction of the independent system operator.

  5. JME 3721.03 (Fluid Mechanics Laboratory): FL24, 1 SCH, R 7-830 PM.  Prerequisites: J M ENGR 3700 and Civil Engineering or Mechanical Engineering major. Physical laboratory exercises focusing on fluid properties and flow phenomena covered in J M ENGR 3700. Calibration and use of a variety of equipment; acquisition, processing, and analysis of data by manual as well as automated methods.

We hope to identify candidates for teaching these classes as soon as possible.  We encourage candidates from underrepresented groups. Interested candidates should send a resume or CV to Jamie Hendrix <hendrixj@wustl.edu>.

 

Adjunct Professors are hired for specific courses.  Every matching of a course with an instructor must be considered within the context of that instructor's qualifications and the content of that course.

  1. Master of Science or a PhD, or equivalent experience, related to the course being taught is required.

  2. At least five years of experience relevant to the course being taught.

  3. At least three years of prior educational experience at the college level, or equivalent, is preferred.

  4. Instructor understands the student body, including their demographics.

  5. Instructor agrees to the usual requirements for a course (timing, deadlines, need for use of modern course management software and digital tools, syllabus requirements, evaluation requirements including completion of course outcomes assessment forms).

  6. Instructor agrees to work with human resources on legal and university requirements for employment.
