The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California - Davis anticipates openings for temporary lecturers for the 2020–2021 academic year to instruct courses in civil and environmental engineering. For brief course descriptions, see the following links: https://ucdavis.pubs.curricunet.com/Catalog/eci
Courses in Engineering (ENG) and Civil Engineering (ECI) which may be available during 2020–2021 pending availability of funding are:
ENG 35: Statics (4 units) – Force systems and equilibrium conditions with emphasis on engineering problems.
ENG 104: Mechanics and Material (4 units) – Uniaxial loading and deformation. General concepts of stress-strain-temperature relations and yield criteria. Torsion of shafts. Bending of beams. Deflections due to bending. Introduction to stability and buckling.
ECI 114: Probabilistic Systems Analysis for Civil Engineers (4 units) – Probabilistic concepts and models in engineering. Statistical analysis of engineering experimental and field data. Introduction to stochastic processes and models of engineering systems.
ECI 136: Building Design: Senior Design Experience (4 units) – Design of a building structure for a specific need under the multiple constraints of safety, serviceability, cost and aesthetics.
ECI 137: Construction Principles & Project Management (4)Restricted to upper division standing in Engineering. Project management, with civil engineering construction and design applications, including project scope, schedule, resources, cost, quality, risk, and control. Construction industry overview. Interactions between planning, design, construction, operations. Construction operations analysis. Contract issues. Project management software, field trips, guest lectures.
ECI 155: Water Resources Engineering Planning (4 units) – Basic engineering planning concepts; role of engineering, economic, environmental and social information and analysis; institutional, political and legal aspects. Case studies and computer models illustrate the planning of water resource systems.
ECI 162: Transportation Land Use Sustainable Design: Senior Design Experience (4 units) – Interactions between land use and transportation systems design. Generalized design paradigm; project-based solutions for transportation land use. Students will select from various strategies to satisfy multiple constraints including cost, effectiveness and environmental sustainability. Oral, poster and written presentations required.
ECI 165: Transportation Policy (3 units) – Transportation and associated environmental problems confronting urban areas, and prospective technological and institutional solutions. Draws upon concepts and methods from economics, engineering, political science and environmental studies.
ECI 173: Foundation Design: Senior Design Experience (4 units) – Soil exploration and determination of properties for design; design of shallow and deep foundations for bearing capacity and settlements; design of retaining structures; selection and evaluation of foundation alternatives; excavation support and dewatering; major design experience and design report preparation.
ECI 179: Pavement types (rigid, flexible, unsurfaced, rail), their applications (roads, airfields, ports, rail) and distress mechanisms. Materials, traffic and environment characterization. Empirical and mechanistic-empirical design procedures. Maintenance, rehabilitation and reconstruction; construction quality; asphalt concrete mix design.
ECI 193 A: Civil & Environmental Engineering Senior Design (4) Culminating design experience for civil engineering and environmental engineering majors. Student teams work closely with faculty, city officials or consulting clients to propose, implement and validate a unique solution to a real-world problem.
ECI 193B—Civil & Environmental Engineering Senior Design (4) Lecture—1 hour(s); Laboratory—3 hour(s). Open to seniors in Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering only. Culminating design experience for civil engineering and environmental engineering majors. Student teams work closely with faculty, city officials or consulting clients to propose, implement and validate a unique solution to a real-world problem.
ECI 289 (A-I): Special Topics in Engineering (up to 4 units) Variable. Prerequisite(s): Consent of Instructor. Directed group study in Environmental Engineering. May be repeated for credit.
Salary and appointment level are commensurate with experience. Actual salary is based on percentage of appointment: One four-unit course = 33% appointment. These positions are covered by a collective bargaining agreement.
The University of California, Davis, is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer with a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of diversity among its faculty and staff.
Candidates must have a Master's degree, or preferably a PhD, in Civil Engineering or a closely related field, be committed to excellence in teaching, and have demonstrated instructional experience or relevant disciplines. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and course load. To ensure consideration, submit curriculum vitae, contact information for three references, list of courses interested in teaching, and details of scholarly or professional attainments and teaching evaluations (if available) via the web-based, online submission system at https://recruit.ucdavis.edu/JPF03715.
