Connecticut Institute of Technology at the University of New Haven


The Connecticut Institute of Technology (CIT) at the University of New Haven invites applications for an assistant professor in electrical and computer engineering beginning in Fall 2021. CIT houses multiple degrees in CS/ECE/Data Science at both the BS and MS levels and also participates in the PhD program in Engineering and Applied Science. The University of New Haven has been recognized by the NSA as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations (CAE-CO), one of only 22 universities in the United States to receive this prestigious designation. The university has made cybersecurity a top priority in its centennial fundraising challenge with the slogan of "Securing Our Future". We are looking for energetic faculty members who want to continue building our national and international reputation.


Location: The University of New Haven is in a great location. New Haven has a lot to offer, and the surrounding shoreline cities are ideal for families with Connecticut being the home of some of the best schools in the nation. East Coast cities are easily accessible by train, and the location is in close proximity to New York and Boston. 


About the University and College: The University of New Haven, founded on the Yale campus in 1920, is a private, coeducational university situated on the coast of southern New England. It’s a diverse and vibrant community of more than 6,800 students, with campuses around the country and around the world. Within its five colleges, students immerse themselves in a transformative, career-focused education across the liberal arts and sciences, fine arts, business, engineering, public safety, and public service. We offer more than 100 academic programs, all grounded in a long-standing commitment to collaborative, interdisciplinary, project-based learning. Here, the experience of learning is both personal and pragmatic, guided by a distinguished faculty who care deeply about individual student success. As leaders in their fields, faculty members provide the inspiration and recognition needed for students to fulfill their potential and succeed at whatever they choose to do.


The Tagliatela College of Engineering (TCoE) takes pride in providing students a well-balanced mix of hands-on education with a strong theoretical foundation that allows graduates to function effectively and confidently in the workplace. Our graduates are highly sought after and known by employers to be work-ready. Our curricula in core engineering and applied science disciplines, combined with strong interdisciplinary coursework, internships in the field, co-curricular activities, and research opportunities, enable our graduates to remain a step ahead of the competition in today's crowded job market. The TCoE is the only private engineering college in Connecticut that offers eight nationally accredited engineering and applied science programs (chemical, civil, computer, electrical, mechanical and industrial & systems engineering, computer science, and chemistry). The buzz is out there beyond Connecticut too as more than half of our incoming first-year students are from out-of-state. We also serve a significant number of international students. The TCoE is ranked in the top third of undergraduate engineering programs nationwide in its category by U.S. News & World Report.
