Full-time, Tenure-track for Fall 2019
Vermont Technical College offers a wide range of associate, baccalaureate, and master's degree programs in such areas as engineering technology, computer sciences, nursing and allied health, agriculture, business, professional studies, using face-to-face, online, and interactive videoconferencing technologies at multiple campuses and sites state-wide. Vermont Technical College is not a research institution.
In addition, the College delivers numerous certificate programs to students and customized training programs for employers. The College prides itself on the quality of the education experience provided to students and their success after graduation.
Vermont Technical College is a small rural college that provides career-focused technical and professional education in a caring community which prepares students for immediate workplace success and continued learning.
The Bachelor of Science in Manufacturing Engineering Technology program prepares graduates for a career applying technical knowledge and leadership skills to contribute to manufacturing competitiveness through process and systems design, operations, quality, continuous improvement, lean manufacturing, and sustainability. Graduates are prepared to employ strong communication, leadership, and teamwork skills and participate productively on professional teams and to develop and continuously improve in a career in manufacturing or a related field.
The Manufacturing Engineering Technology program is part of the Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering Technology department. The department has had a professor with a strong focus on manufacturing, but that person is leaving to pursue another opportunity. While other members of the department are very significantly involved in the Manufacturing program and teach some of the courses, their primary strengths lie in other areas. We need to find someone for whom manufacturing is their core area of expertise to be the heart of this program.
Teach at the undergraduate level in the area of manufacturing engineering technology, which may include:
Product design and production
Jig and fixture design
Traditional machine tools - manual mill, lathe, etc.
Advanced manufacturing and automation (industrial robotics)
Manufacturing capstone courses
Other subjects in the field of manufacturing
Perform industry and community outreach
Developing partnerships with regional industry and working closely with the program advisory board are critical responsibilities.
Department and Laboratory contributions
Oversee lab technician as they assist students with lab activities and projects.
Perform assessment activities intended to maintain accreditation.
Develop curriculum as needed.
Serve the college community by participating in committees, student advising, recruitment, student competitions, etc.
Note: additional information about the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program and Vermont Technical College may be viewed at the Vermont Tech website, www.vtc.edu.
The candidate is required to have professional experience in manufacturing, ideally as a manufacturing engineer. Experience as a machinist, tool maker or CNC programmer/operator will also be valuable. A Master's degree or B.S. degree and PE license is preferred. Prior teaching experience is highly desirable.
Most courses will include the production, by students, of physical objects, so hands-on skills are very important - these are not paper projects
