Instructors teach two to three courses per semester during the academic year, including one or more engineering design/projects courses (first year, community engagement, entrepreneurship-focused) and core engineering courses (such as engineering drawing, thermodynamics, statics, materials science, circuits, and data analysis). Candidates must have earned a Ph.D., Master’s degree, or a Bachelor’s degree in an engineering discipline, engineering education, or a closely related field. Individuals without a graduate degree should also have 5 or more years of professional experience as an engineer or teacher. Successful candidates must demonstrate a strong commitment to high-quality undergraduate engineering education and active engagement in an engineering field. The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment.
