NFPA Education Partner Seeking Adjunct for Fluid Power Lab Course

NFPA works with a growing number of schools, educators, and students across the country to help grow fluid power education and workforce development. One of our partners, the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in Chicago is looking for an adjunct instructor for a fluid power technical elective course in its fluid power laboratory. The class would be held in the late afternoon three times a week for a semester with the possibility of being continued other semesters. The ideal candidate would have a Ph.D. and be familiar with fluid power lab equipment and test methods. That familiarity could come from experience as a lab technician, engineer, product school training person, or related position.

Additional course information is available here.

NFPA members and educator partners alike are encouraged to share the position announcement with any appropriate contacts they may have. Inquiries should be directed to David Williams, Professor of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, at
