The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The Citadel’s ECE Department is dedicated to educating principled leaders through three distinct programs: the Undergraduate Corps of Cadets, an evening undergraduate program, and an evening MSEE program.
Located in historic Charleston, S.C., The Citadel is a unique institution that offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in the humanities, business, math, science, engineering, and education. With an enrollment of more than 2100, the Corps of Cadets is the nation’s largest military college program outside the service academies. All cadets are educated within a classic military system and about 35 percent of the graduating seniors earn military commissions. The remaining graduates attend graduate school or enter the job market. The Citadel Graduate College serves residents of South Carolina’s beautiful Lowcountry and includes our full-time evening undergraduate BSEE, and part-time graduate MSEE degree programs.
The academic programs at the college are complemented by a strong commitment to service and emphatic support of an honor code that calls upon a cadet not to lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do. Since its founding in 1842, The Citadel’s emphasis on character as well as intellect has produced generations of graduates who have served their nation, their professions, and their communities with distinction.
