UCL Mechanical Engineering has been pioneering the development of engineering education, having taught the core discipline for over 170 years. Today our students are taught core engineering disciplines and supervised in individual and group research projects by academics that are recognised research world-leaders in their fields. World-leading educational innovation continues to this day. We have invested in a new workshop facility dedicated to teaching practical engineering, called MechSpace. It is a tailored space with Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) capabilities to support multiple engineering projects, through the full design cycle: investigate, design, analyse, build, test and implement.
About the role The main purpose of these roles is to strengthen the engineering design teaching in our mechanical engineering undergraduate programme. The two role holders will contribute to the development, planning and implementation of a high-quality curriculum. They will lead on the design and development of problem-based, project-based, and practical-based learning activities. They will supervise groups of students competing in international competitions through extra-curricular activities, such as the Shell Eco-marathon, Formula Student, UCL Rocket and Roboboat. The Lecturer (Teaching) in Engineering Design and Industry Engagement will take leadership in creating and fostering effective links with industry and other professional organisations to help provide realistic frameworks for student learning activities. They will also have specific responsibility for 4th year MEng group design and build projects.
You will have a 1st Class MEng/MSc or Phd in Mechanical Engineering or closely related discipline with demonstrated excellence in university-level teaching in engineering design. You will be able to conceive and deliver high quality practical and laboratory classes in engineering design with a demonstrated record of providing high quality project supervision at undergraduate or postgraduate level. You will be a natural and effective communicator, with an ability to successfully motivate and engage students. You will be able to work independently and also as part of a team, recognising when advice / input needs to be sought, and maintaining a positive attitude to colleagues, staff and students.
