Part-time or Visiting Graduate Faculty

The Computer Science Professionals Masters program is also seeking part-time faculty as visiting faculty, to teach short-term seminars of single courses on our campus, or to teach online classes in our Computer Science Professionals Coop program. Because we teach all courses at MUM on the block-system where each course is taught in a one-month format (see http://mscs.mum.edu/one-course.html), this makes it easier for professionals or faculty with other commitments to visit MUM and teach a single course in their area of expertise. Our seminars are equivalent to half of a regular course, and thus are typically two-weeks full-time in duration, similar to other full-time professional courses in industry. We are looking for candidates to teach a variety of graduate level classes including algorithms, networking, advanced programming languages, compilers, computer graphics, and parallel programming.

Part-time Instructors are responsible for teaching courses in our DE program. These courses are based on recorded courses from on-campus and all associated course materials, and are fully developed and organized in an online environment. Duties include all aspects of online course delivery, including leading threaded discussions and addressing student questions using an online Learning Management System, and grading papers. Our courses are all well-defined with existing syllabus and supporting materials from our regular on-campus courses, captured on video and offered online in a format taught over a 14 week period.
