The Aerospace Engineering Department at San José State University seeks qualified candidates for two full-time positions at the Assistant Professor level. The Department offers an MSAE program with an enrollment of 77 and an ABET-accredited BSAE program with an enrollment of 317. Student populations in the Department are very diverse with Asian (35%) and Hispanic/Latinx (24%) being the two largest groups. AE students are supported in a thriving learning community which offers on-demand tutoring for all required courses, student mentoring, and an AE women’s forum. Our courses combine student-centered pedagogies, such as in-class cooperative problem solving, integrated project-based learning, and physical laboratories in aerodynamics, aerospace structures, dynamics, and controls. Professional skills are integrated throughout the curriculum with strong emphasis on design-build-test-and-fly/launch projects involving UAVs, microsatellites, and rockets. Many of these projects involve collaboration with NASA and local industry. The Technology Education Satellite program (TechEdSat) in particular, was pioneered through a collaboration of the Department with NASA Ames Research Center. The College is the leading provider of engineers to Silicon Valley. Website:
