Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed, and no new applications is accepted. ***

The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the largest producers of electrical engineers and computer engineers in the United States. Almost 2,600 students are enrolled in the School’s graduate and undergraduate programs, and in the last academic year, 801 degrees were awarded. All ECE undergraduate and graduate programs are in the top six of the most recent college rankings by U.S. News & World Report.

ECE is seeking to increase and improve the design experiences for undergraduate students at every level. Current ECE design courses include ECE 1010 Introduction to ECE Design, ECE 2031 Digital Design Lab, ECE 2045 Practical Skills and Design, ECE 3882 ECE Design Fundamentals, and ECE 4011/4012 ECE Culminating (i.e., Capstone) Design Project I/II. There are also multi-disciplinary capstone design paths through the course GT 4823 and the Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) program. Currently, only ECE 2031 the Capstone Design courses (student choose one of the paths) are required. However, the School intends to scale up ECE 3882 ECE Design Fundamentals to become a required course for all EE and CmpE undergraduate students. The School has a new maker space, the Interdisciplinary Design Commons (IDC), which emphasizes electronics, attached to its main building, and would like to use this space to bring new opportunities to students both within the curriculum and in extra-curricular activities.

The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology is recruiting a non-tenure track full-time design Professor of the Practice to lead and teach courses in electrical and computer engineering design, lead in the development of the design curriculum in the School, serve as the faculty lead for the IDC maker space, and assist with corporate fundraising in support of Capstone Design. In particular, this Professor of the Practice will be the lead instructor for the junior-level design course, ECE 3882 ECE Design Fundamentals, which will include coordinating other faculty instructors and possibly managing graduate and undergraduate teaching assistants for the course. The position will leverage the new electronics-oriented Maker Space to create integrated design activities in the department as well as interdisciplinary activities across departments. The ideal candidate would stay abreast of new trends in education research, with emphasis in design, and would pursue external funding to develop design education programs. The successful candidate will have an excellent track record in industry of leading new-product development teams in the design of electrical or electronic systems and will have experience with design prototyping and development testing to meet product specifications, cost, schedule, and performance responsibilities, generation of new product design documentation, development of test plans, work prioritization for engineering staff, and the development of manufacturing processes to support new product designs.

The position is a nine-month faculty position, subject to annual reappointment review, with no limit as to the number of years that may be served. The teaching workload is the equivalent of two courses per term plus program leadership and development. Summer compensation is possible for teaching, approved ECE-funded program development, or sponsored program development. Professors of the Practice are subject to, and protected by, the same Institute policies concerning academic freedom as tenured and tenure track Faculty. Salary will be commensurate with the candidate’s level of experience.

Required qualifications • A Master's degree in electrical and computer engineering or related field • A minimum of 10 years in industry leading product design and development teams in the field of electrical and computer engineering • A national/international reputation for excellence • Ability to successfully interact and communicate with students, faculty, and electrical and computer engineering industry professionals • Experience in the generation of new product design documentation

Preferred qualifications • A Ph.D. in engineering or computer science • University-level or post-graduate professional education teaching experience • A demonstrable network of industry contacts • History of collaborative work with diverse stakeholders including students, faculty/staff, and the community • Experience with intellectual property procedures and business/industry development
