Minnesota State University, Mankato's Iron Range Engineering (IRE) program offers an award winning, ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science in Engineering, with a new, progressive approach to engineering education that uses project-based learning (PBL) for upper division students. IRE and Twin Cities Engineering (TCE) were recognized as one of the top five emerging innovative engineering education programs (https://mankato.mnsu.edu/about-the-university/news-and-events/iron-range-engineering-recognized-by-mit-study/).
Students who have typically finished their lower division coursework at a regional community college earn their degrees by completing four semester long team projects and coursework that supports design, professional and technical learning. Projects are sponsored by local and regional industry. The IRE curriculum integrates engineering design and the technical fundamentals of engineering with the development of their professional skills necessary to succeed as an engineer, such as teamwork, time management, oral and written communication, project management, professional responsibility and independent learning. Students can choose an engineering focus area by selecting elective credits in that area. Faculty support the technical learning of all students in her/his broad area of technical expertise as well as guide student teams as project team facilitators and mentors. Faculty collaborate across the department to support engineering student learning in our three programs (IRE, TCE and the new Bell engineering program).
The program was developed using the knowledge and techniques supported by recent research on the development of technical and professional competencies expected of the engineer of the future. This position will include interaction with industry partners. There is an expectation of continued research and/or scholarly activity in this tenure-track probationary position. Additional information on the department and program can be found at: http://cset.mnsu.edu/ie and http://ire.minnstate.edu.
The Department of Integrated Engineering is dedicated to building a culturally diverse faculty and staff committed to working in a multicultural and inclusive environments and strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities and covered veterans.
