Professional-In-Residence to Support the Construction Engineering Technology Program

Louisiana Tech University; Ruston, LA

As the result of a generous grant from the Contractors’ Educational Trust Fund (CETF), the College of Engineering and Science (COES) at Louisiana Tech University anticipates filling a non-tenure track Professional-in-Residence position in the Construction Engineering Technology (CET) Program to enhance interaction with industry and stimulate student interest in construction careers. A minimum of 15 years of demonstrated professional, non-academic experience in construction and construction management is required. A master’s degree in construction engineering technology, construction engineering, construction management, civil engineering, engineering management, or a related field is strongly preferred. We envision that an individual with extensive construction experience at a senior level in a contractor, owner, or consultant organization will be hired for this position. Registered professional engineers and registered professional land surveyors who meet the experience and other requirements are encouraged to apply.

The College of Engineering and Science offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Construction Engineering Technology and in Civil Engineering and a Master of Science degree in Engineering and Technology Management. The CET bachelor’s program provides a technical and managerial education in that field of construction most closely aligned with engineering, with a particular emphasis on highway, heavy, and underground construction. The CET Program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.

The successful candidate will be expected to provide a strong liaison with industry, organize student field trips, teach construction engineering courses, develop and work with appropriate certificate programs, help facilitate student internships, support recruiting/retention efforts, and work with student groups. Ideally, the construction professional will be able to help with courses in the areas of surveying, estimating, scheduling, contracts, specifications, and construction equipment and methods. He or she should also be able to communicate well with students. The professional will also interact with the Construction Engineering Technology Program Chair and faculty, the Director for Construction Engineering Technology, and the Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) for Louisiana Tech’s CET Program. The IAB for Construction Engineering Technology has endorsed the establishment of this position.

Send 1) a professional resume, 2) a statement of interests that you hope to pursue in this position that will, specifically, enhance the CET Program and, generally, the construction industry in the region, and 3) contact information for at least three references in a single PDF file electronically to facsearch@latech.edu with the subject line "your last name, your first name: CET Professional-in-Residence."
