Senior Lecturer / Associate Professor, Built Environment

Position Number: 2043
Applications Close: 15 May 2015

Ongoing Position  

Full-time Position, 38 hours per week  

Friendly Working Environment

About the role:

 
Melbourne Polytechnic is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified and motivated individual to fill the position of Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor to establish and manage the Bachelor of the Built Environment. The program is a three year program that seeks to produce graduates that are immediately employable and who can undertake further architectural studies at Masters level. The incumbent will need to establish the program and also develop relationships with the architectural schools so that students are able to access further studies at masters level so as to be eligible to register as architects. This role will require an individual who has good architectural and building industry contacts so as to strengthen the involvement of industry in the program.


The course:

The Bachelor of the Built Environment is a newly TEQSA accredited program with the Department of Sustainable Design and Construction in the Faculty Engineering and Construction. The Bachelor of the Built Environment was developed as an addition/adjunct to the successful Advanced Diploma of Building Design. The primary focus of the new course is the fostering of the architectural mindset by focusing on the skills of drawing and observation as adjuncts/fundamentals to the design process. The rational of the course is split between the provision of capabilities appropriate for immediate employment at a para-professional level within the architecture industry, and provision of a grounding educational experience to provide an articulation pathway to a masters level architecture course.
