Adjunct (Part-Time) Faculty Positions

Adjunct faculty must have earned at least a Masters degree and it is preferable that they have a doctorate in an appropriate engineering field. We have a relatively small department and typically have only a few openings for adjunct positions for specific required courses already part of the curriculum.

We do not offer evening or Saturday classes. 3-unit lecture courses typically meet one hour on MWF. Laboratory sections are typically 3 hours and offered in the afternoons 2:30-5:20 pm or on Tues or Thursday morning.
