Aggie Ingeniero, November 2021





We are busy at the College of Engineering with ongoing searches for new tenure-track faculty members. We are fortunate that the newly instituted differential tuition policy for the college has enabled us to support these new faculty positions. The college is seeking new faculty members for civil engineering, electrical and computer engineering and mechanical and aerospace engineering. Additionally, we are hoping to add new faculty in several disciplines within the Department of Engineering Technology and Surveying Engineering. This department is leading a new direction to develop and offer new courses that will help all engineering students progress more easily through the engineering curriculum and keep them in a timely track toward graduation. These new positions will help bridge some unfulfilled needs in our instructional demands.

Another important addition will be a new director for the Carlsbad Environmental Monitoring and Research Center. CEMRC has a long history as part of the College of Engineering and plans call for strengthened research ties with the unique mission and expertise of this important facility.
