| Rowan University is a comprehensive state-designated research institution with approximately 16,000 students. Its main campus is located in Glassboro, N.J., 20-miles southeast of Philadelphia, and it has a branch campus and medical school in Camden and a second medical school in nearby Stratford. Rowan is one of two universities in the country to offer M.D. and D.O. medical-degree programs. The School of Osteopathic Medicine has a faculty practice plan that serves approximately 200,000 patients throughout Southern New Jersey. The institution is also home to the South Jersey Technology Park, which fosters the translation of applied research into commercial products and processes. The University boasts seven colleges--William G. Rohrer College of Business, Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering and colleges of Communications and Creative Arts, Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, Performing Arts, and Science and Mathematics. Rowan has been recognized as one of the Top 100 public universities in the nation and is ranked 3rd among public institutions in the North by US News & World Report. |
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is a rapidly growing program with a dynamic group of faculty. In addition, the Department also houses a newly formed Center for Research and Education in Advanced Transportation Engineering Systems (CREATEs) that will have state-of-the-art facilities including a Heavy Vehicle Simulator (HVS). The HVS is capable of simulating a large volume of highway vehicle loading in a short time period on flexible or rigid pavements or bridges. The wheel load varies from 20 to 100 kN (4.5?22.5 kips), and its configuration takes advantage of the symmetry of truck or aircraft tire configurations. The College of Engineering has an innovative Bachelor of Science degree programs in Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical and Computer, and Mechanical Engineering that emphasize multidisciplinary experiences, teamwork, technical communication, and continuous engineering applications throughout the four years, as well as a newly formed Ph.D. program. The College has a highly selective student-centered undergraduate program with an expanding graduate program. A new engineering building is being constructed at present, which will double our occupancy space. We are looking for faculty who can contribute to some of our strategic areas of research such as advanced materials, sustainability, and transportation. We have a dynamic engineering college and are looking for faculty with new and innovative ideas. Multidisciplinary collaborations are a norm at our engineering college. The College of Engineering was created through a $100M gift from Henry and Betty Rowan and has continued to expand through the new South Jersey Tech Park.
Major metropolitan areas within the Northeast Corridor are within easy reach of Glassboro. Philadelphia is a thirty-minute drive, New York City and Washington, D.C. are less than three hours away, and the Jersey Shore is only an hour drive.
