Open Rank/Tenure Track Faculty in Mechanical Engineering – Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology


The Mechanical Engineering Department at Rose-Hulman is searching for inspiring educators who share our passion for teaching undergraduate engineering students. Our mission is “to provide students with the world’s best undergraduate science, engineering, and mathematics education in an environment of individual attention and support.” If this resonates with you, then we think you’ll love what we have to offer.

Rose-Hulman’s Mechanical Engineering Department has established itself as one of the top ME programs in the nation. See what the media and our peer institutions have said by visiting https://www.rose-hulman.edu/about-us/rankings-and-distinction.html. Our scenic campus in Terre Haute, IN is home to an increasingly diverse student body of 2,000 students who are as passionate to learn and create as we are to guide them. Our facilities include modern classrooms, state-of-the-art instructional laboratories, and design-focused innovation centers. Walking the halls, you can’t miss the effect that our open-door culture has on the relationships between our faculty, staff, and students. At Rose-Hulman, education extends beyond the classroom.
