University Faculty Systems Engineering
The Manufacturing & Systems Engineering (M&SE) Department
in the College of Applied Science and Technology at Weber State
University is accepting applications for a full-time, 9-month
tenure track teaching position in the Systems Engineering program
starting Spring or fall 2024, with a teaching load of 24 credit
hours over two semesters. The M&SE Department currently has a
newly developed M.Sc. Systems Engineering and a B.Sc. Manufacturing
This position will involve teaching a variety of graduate courses
and laboratories in systems engineering, and appropriate scholarly,
service and outreach activities. Courses may also include senior
capstone projects. The focus of this position is to teach graduate
courses in Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and SysML, while
incorporating INCOSE standards and teachings. The successful
candidate will be flexible and able to work effectively with
students, faculty, and staff. A candidate with broad capabilities
in current technologies taught at WSU (industrial, manufacturing,
and mechanical systems) would also be a plus. Service duties
include program-building and advising, as well as commitment to
extracurricular activities. Service to the department, college, and
university is expected.
Required courses to be taught are:
- Model based systems engineering (MBSE) and SysML: An
introduction to Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) using a
prominent modeling language. Various system architectures will be
discussed and methodologies to build relevant system models will be
- System Logistics: Ensuring a System of Systems Approach: System
of systems is a collection of task-oriented or dedicated systems
that pool their resources and capabilities together to create a
new, more complex system which offers more functionality and
performance than simply the sum of the constituent systems. This
course will introduce the subsequent sustaining maintenance &
support of the system throughout its entire life cycle, including
end of life/disposal. It will also include different DoD tailorable
concepts to effectively manage and field products. Topics include:
Reliability Growth, Initial Contractor Support (ICS), and
Performance-Based Logistics (PBL)Systems of Systems (SoS) or
Federation of Systems (FoS).
- Foundation of Systems Engineering: The Foundations of Systems
Engineering course is an introductory overview of the systems
engineering perspective and is presented to set the conceptual and
practical framework of the entire systems engineering graduate
program. The course covers the foundational components of systems
engineering, from the concept development stage through the process
steps of engineering development. Several issues related to
post-development, disposal, and special topics areas are also
- Overview of Systems Engineering Processes: An overview of
system life-cycle design processes and the associated analysis
techniques. Approaches to system reliability, maintainability and
failure analysis are also explored.
- Other assigned upper and lower division courses in systems
engineering including Organizational System, Requirement
Engineering, and Manufacturing Systems I & II and Senior
For a tenure track appointment, applicants must have a minimum of a
PhD degree in STEM or related discipline and at least two years of
applicable work experience.
For a non-tenure-track appointment, applicants must have a minimum
of a bachelor’s degree in STEM or related discipline and four years
of applicable work experience.
For non-tenure-track appointments, transition to tenure track would
require approval of the Dean and Department Chair based on
sufficient evidence of academic qualifications and performance.
Instructor (non-tenure track) positions are renewable by separate
contract at the sole discretion of the university.
- Excellent oral and written communication skills.
- A Ph.D. in Systems Engineering, Industrial Systems Engineering
(ISE), or another STEM related field
- INCOSE certified (CSEP/ESEP), being an INCOSE SEP exam
instructor is a plus.
- At least five years of industry experience after the B.Sc. in
the degree related area.
- Defense technology experience a plus
- Teaching experience at the University level along with positive
evaluations are a plus.
