The University's College of Engineering, Science and Environment brings together expertise in
engineering, environment and the sciences to deliver life ready graduates and transformative
solutions to our region and the world.

The School of Engineering is one of five schools in the College and is one of the most research
intensive Schools within the University. It consists of four major Discipline groupings that are
responsible for delivering most of the engineering degree specialisations in the University. The
School is rated number one in Australia for the quality of overall experience for undergraduate
engineering students and for median salaries with 94% of our engineering undergraduates finding
employment within four months of completing their studies.

The research focus in the School of Engineering ensures that students are exposed to cutting
edge, world-class thinking and are taught by staff who are at the forefront of developments in their
chosen field. A number of pioneering inventions have been developed within the School that have
gone on to be patented and commercialised.

Aerospace Systems Engineering is one of the fastest growing and highest demand sub-disciplines
in both mechanical engineering and aerospace engineering. The Hunter region has the highest
density of industry customers in Australia that need skills in aerospace systems engineering. The
region is not only home to both the RAAF Base at Williamtown (the RAAF's command, operations,
and training base for the new F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)) and the Williamtown Aerospace
Centre (WAC), it also hosts many of the systems integration companies that support new RAAF
aircraft and projects.

This Lecturer role represents an exciting and unique opportunity to deliver and evolve the only
Australian University program in Aerospace Systems Engineering as well as to develop
partnerships with these important Aerospace industry bodies. The successful candidate will work
