UNG is focused on a mission of educational excellence, leadership development and community engagement opportunities that develop students into leaders for a diverse and global society. Through a variety of educational pathways that provide access and range from certificates and associate degrees to a professional doctoral program, UNG is responsive to regional education and economic development needs.

This person will also be the coordinator of the pre-engineering program.  The standard teaching load at UNG is 12 credit hours per semester.  Excellence in teaching, scholarly activity and university/community service is required for promotion and tenure.  Scholarly work involving undergraduates, advising students, service to the university and community, active participation in departmental activities, maintaining a collegial work environment and professional development are expected.  Applicants are required to have a Ph.D. in Engineering.
