This includes developing and coordinating student design projects and establishing mentor relationships with practicing engineers who have expertise in a variety of civil/environmental disciplines. Additional teaching responsibilities will include courses in the applicant’s area(s) of expertise, preferably advanced undergraduate and design courses. The selected applicant will help the department build relationships and collaborations with engineers, companies, and alumni in the community and state, as well as assist with the department’s advisory board.
