Job Details

The W Booth School of Engineering Practice and Technology is seeking an outstanding individual for a contractually limited appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor in the Bachelor of Technology Program.  The successful candidate will specialize in one or more of the following areas: Digital Manufacturing, Internet-of-Things (IOT), IOT Cloud Applications and Cyber-physical Systems.                                                          

McMaster’s large, attractive campus, the interior of which is open only to pedestrians and cyclists, is at the western end of Lake Ontario.  The University is minutes from downtown Hamilton, a city rich in history and culture with a vibrant arts community.  Nearby recreational and conservation attractions include Cootes Paradise, the Bruce Trail, the Niagara Escarpment, the Waterfront Trail, and the Royal Botanical Gardens.  Surrounded by spectacular nature and unique neighbourhoods, Hamilton is ideally located halfway between Toronto and Niagara Falls.

The Faculty of Engineering at McMaster University has a reputation for innovative programs, cutting-edge research, leading faculty, and aspiring students. It has earned a strong reputation as a centre for academic excellence and innovation. The Faculty has approximately 180 faculty members, along with close to 5,500 undergraduate (4,200 in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and 1,250 in the W Booth School of Engineering Practice and Technology), 425 Master’s students, and 340 PhD students. The Faculty of Engineering promotes a nurturing and inclusive environment where opportunities are made available for personal growth and professional development.

The W Booth School of Engineering Practice and Technology is home to the McMaster-Mohawk Bachelor of Technology Partnership and hosts a number of professional masters level programs in Engineering Practice oriented to the development of leadership and entrepreneurial competencies.

The Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) combined degree/diploma program within the W Booth School of Engineering Practice and Technology, are a fresh approach to university level education for the dynamic world of engineering.  Based at McMaster University, this joint program with Mohawk College has a unique focus on skills-based learning and the application of engineering and business theory in three degree specializations: Automotive and Vehicle Technology, Biotechnology, and Process Automation Technology.  The B.Tech. Degree Completion Program offers three degree specialization programs in Software Engineering Technology, Manufacturing Engineering Technology, Civil Engineering Technology and Energy Engineering Technologies. The B.Tech. program was developed in consultation with industry to produce graduates who are work place ready, able to move from the shop floor to the executive suite, or onwards to studies in Master’s and Doctoral programs in engineering and business.

The B.Tech. program has emerged as a leader in engineering technology education for those who are analytical,  innovative, and learn best by doing.  Now the fastest growing program at McMaster, the B.Tech. combined degree/diploma program is home to approximately 800 undergraduate students, 25 faculty, and 12 staff.  With lecture sizes of approximately 70 students and lab components to complement almost every technical course, B.Tech. is not a typical university engineering program.  B.Tech. students know the theory, have practical skills, and gain 12 months of co-op work experience before they graduate with both a McMaster University degree and Mohawk College advanced diploma and business management certificate.
