 University of Texas at Austin Cal Poly Humboldt

School of Engineering

Tenure Track Faculty (CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION)

The School of Engineering will launch three new programs in Fall 2023 at Humboldt: Energy Systems Engineering (B.S.), Mechanical Engineering (B.S.), and Engineering and Community Practice (M.Eng). These will join our existing program in Environmental Resources Engineering (B.S.) and two options in the Environmental Systems master’s program (M.S.): Environmental Resources Engineering and Energy, Technology, and Policy. New faculty will be able to contribute to multiple programs if applicable. 

The launch of our new Engineering programs is part of the polytechnic transition at Humboldt. In addition to support for new faculty, there are several new facilities in the planning and design phase that will be constructed in the coming years, including a Engineering and Technology building that will house our new programs, an Energy Research & Sustainability building that will included dedicated microgrid teaching and research facilities, and a Marine Research Facility that will support a range of activities including offshore wind power research. 

We anticipate that new faculty members will be able to collaborate in developing & launching new programs and facilities that will shape the future of engineering education and research at Humboldt. Our foundational curriculum for engineering students includes emphasizing a systems-thinking approach, skillfully applying computational methods and data analysis, seeking opportunities for applied design work to support learning, and valuing engineering work that is done in service to society. The new programs will incorporate and build on this foundation.
