The Texas A&M Engineering Academies, in partnership with two-year institutions, is the only engineering transition program of its kind in the United States. The Engineering Academies offer students interested in pursuing an engineering, engineering technology, or computer science degree at Texas A&M University the opportunity to be co-enrolled at a partner two-year institution and Texas A&M University – College Station. These talented students will be enrolled in Texas A&M engineering courses, taught by Texas A&M faculty, while simultaneously taking their science, mathematics, and core curriculum courses at the two-year college.

The College of Engineering at Texas A&M University invites applications for academic professional track faculty positions at the associate professor of practice level with teaching expertise in engineering. Successful applicants will teach primarily at the undergraduate level and provide extensive support for the Texas A&M Engineering Academies including developing and implementing improvements to instructional techniques and participating in all aspects of the first-year faculty meetings in College Station. Applicants will be responsible for the organization, delivery, evaluation and assessment of the engineering courses and student outcomes associated with those courses. The engineering courses include, but may not be limited to introductory engineering design; statics and dynamics; and engineering ethics. Successful applicants will serve as a liaison between engineering faculty/staff and the two-year partner institutions and advise and mentor undergraduate students and student organizations. Strong written and verbal communication skills are required. Applicants should consult the Engineering Academies department’s website to review the program (https://engineering.tamu.edu/academies).

Applicants must have, at the minimum, an earned bachelor level degree for the associate professor of practice title.

Applicants will be expected to work/teach at the Texas A&M-College Station campus during the summer 2018, collaborating with engineering faculty on course content and teaching pedagogy. Starting with the fall 2018 semester, faculty will transition to the two-year institution to teach specified Texas A&M engineering courses to students enrolled in the Engineering Academies. The two-year partner institution is located in Brenham, Texas.
