MSOE, a highly ranked undergraduate and master’s level institution of learning founded in 1903, is in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The institution serves approximately 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of engineering, mathematics, business, nursing and communications. The university prides itself on having more laboratories than classrooms on campus, showing our commitment to experiential learning. University faculty are primarily evaluated on their teaching excellence.

The CAECM Department maintains a strong student-centered focus and is committed to educating future leaders in engineering design and construction. The department currently serves more than 350 undergraduate and graduate students, has 14 full-time faculty members of various rank and expertise, and has experienced growth with the addition of the recently accredited Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree program. Degree offerings include Bachelor and Master of Science in Architectural Engineering, Bachelor and Master of Science in Civil Engineering, and Bachelor of Science in Construction Management. Several specializations are available, including mechanical and electrical systems engineering for buildings, structural engineering, environmental and water resources engineering, transportation engineering and construction management. In addition, the department collaborates with other departments on campus to provide numerous opportunities for students and faculty.

The following attributes and credentials are required of the candidate:

  • A master’s degree in Architectural, Civil, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering or a closely related field

  • A strong commitment to, and excellence in, undergraduate and master’s level teaching
  • Willing and able to teach course work at all levels, from first year courses to graduate courses, primarily within the candidate’s specialty of building electrical systems (e.g., power distribution, communications design, illumination design, etc.) but also fundamental courses in other areas (e.g., basic mechanical systems courses, engineering graphics, etc.) as necessary and as assigned by the Department Chair
  • Willing to participate in departmental and institutional activities, such as academic advising, assessment initiatives, institutional service, or other activities as assigned

In addition, the following attributes and credentials are strongly preferred:

  • An earned doctorate (Ph.D.) in Architectural, Civil, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering or a closely related field
  • Additional specialty licensure and/or certification, such as LEED Certification
  • Able and willing to teach courses in other related areas (e.g., first year introductory courses, construction materials, building information modeling)
  • An ability and desire to advise fourth-year students in their undergraduate capstone projects and master’s students in their graduate capstone projects
  • Membership in one or more professional societies, with a desire to pursue leadership roles within those societies
  • Able and willing to collaborate with other departmental faculty and other academic units on campus, including student organizations
  • A commitment to lifelong learning by means of professional development, applied research, publication and/or engineering practice
