Sessional Instructor
Winter 2017

The University of Prince Edward Island School of Sustainable Design Engineering has openings for Sessional Instructors for the forthcoming 2017 Winter Semester. These positions are subject to final budgetary approval.

ENGN 222 Engineering Projects II

A continuation of engineering 221, students will complete detailed paper designs of their concepts, in-depth engineering analysis, as well as develop a physical model or demonstration to support the recommended design solution.  Working closely with community partners and faculty, students will learn how to manage a complex client oriented project, supported by accurate numerical analysis and professional documentation.  Client interaction and presentations occur at selected hold points and demonstration of concept at a public industry expo is required.

(Six lab hours per week; team taught with Faculty Members)

ENGN 225 Materials Science

This course is an introduction to the properties and behaviour of engineering materials. Topics include atomic structure and bonding, crystalline structures, deformation, metallic structures, hardening and annealing, phase diagrams, ceramics, polymers, composites, electrical and optical properties. Computer applications are used.

(Three lecture hours and three lab hours per week)

ENGN 372 – Project-Based Professional Practice II

A continuation of Engineering 371, students will complete detailed designs of their concepts, build full-scale operational prototypes (where possible) and test them in a controlled laboratory and industrial environment (where possible).  Working closely with faculty and industry partners, students will prepare patent applications and develop commercialization plans for the products or processes developed.  Demonstration of concept during an end of year industry expo is required.

(Three lecture hours and three lab hours per week; team-taught with a Faculty Member)

Qualified individuals must have a Bachelor’s Degree in a relevant engineering discipline. A Master’s Degree in a relevant engineering discipline, or an equivalent combination of qualifications and experience, would be considered a strong asset. Candidates should be registered as a Professional Engineer or be eligible for registration as a Professional Engineer on Prince Edward Island. Professional engineering experience is expected and will be an important consideration in the selection process, in particular for ENGN 372.

Please note that members of the School of Sustainable Design Engineering’s Sessional Roster will be given priority in consideration for this position.

Application Instructions:
Please specify the specific course(s) to which you are applying and include a resume specifying academic qualifications, relevant teaching and professional experience as well as the contact information of three references to:
