Every academic researcher hopes his or her discoveries will break new ground. Although the numbers are growing, only a handful of Binghamton faculty have worked to make that ground the foundation of a business. Howard Wang has joined the ranks of those reaching for commercial success.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering invites applications for a tenure-track, assistant professor faculty position in the area of dynamics beginning Fall 2013. Candidates must have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering. The successful candidate's research will be in MEMS, NEMS, sensors, actuators, and energy harvesters. Experience in the fields of nonlinear dynamics, mechatronics, and control will be considered a plus. The candidate will be able to obtain external research funding, and will teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels of dynamics, vibrations.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering invites applications for a tenure-track, assistant professor faculty position in mechanical systems design beginning Fall 2013. Candidates must have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering. The successful candidate’s research will be in mechanical systems design, including mechatronics, will be able to obtain external research funding, and will teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The candidate will be expected to teach in one of the following areas: mechanical design, computer-aided design (CAE), finite element analysis (FEA), or mechatronics.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the State University of New York at Binghamton has an opening for a full-time, non-tenure track lecturer. The successful applicant will have outstanding abilities in teaching and mentoring of students. Teaching responsibilities will include core mechanics courses, CAD courses, laboratory courses, and possibly other undergraduate mechanical engineering courses in which the candidate has expertise. Responsibilities also include mentoring students and advising student design project teams.
Just what comes to mind when you think of mechanical engineers? Are they people who design appliances – or people who design airplanes? Or both?
Mechanical engineers really do it all, designing and making nearly everything you can imagine. They design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, motor vehicles, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices and more. And at the Watson School, we'll teach you about the how and why, as well as help you learn to design and fabricate the products that will affect your life and the lives of everyone around you.
So, whether or not you tinkered with the toaster in your younger days - and whether or not you could put it back together without having parts left over - we'll teach you the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, including computer-aided design, give you hands-on experience and prepare you for whatever path you wish to take in the mechanical engineering field.
Our Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET.
