Additional Information

The School of Design and Construction is distinctive in higher education in that four of the major disciplines of the Built Environment are held within one School: Architecture, Construction Management, Interior Design and Landscape Architecture. The collaborative make-up of the School enables faculty to work with students from different disciplines in an integrated environment with the goal of promoting and increasing effectiveness within the professions. Integration opportunities also extend to the College of Engineering and Architecture via the potential for collaborating on teaching and research.

The Construction Management program is an ACCE accredited program. The curriculum is a four year profession Program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management. Upon completion of pre-requisite courses, non-certified students must apply after their first year to be certified into the program and complete the final three years. The Construction Management program has an active student internship program and many double-majors in Architecture and Construction Management. Additionally, Construction Management offers a Minor Program that consists of students from many disciplines including Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Design, and Civil Engineering. An emphasis/track in Construction Engineering was recently developed in cooperation with the Civil Engineering program. An anticipated start date of fall 2016 has been set for the Construction Management and Civil Engineering programs to deliver a totally integrated Construction Engineering Management Bachelor’s degree. Construction Management at WSU is clearly committed to integration and collaboration and we are seeking candidates who find the opportunity to work in this type of environment in teaching, research and service to be of particular interest.

The School of Design and Construction (SDC), formed in July 2012, is the result of a concerted, faculty-led merger of existing programs in Architecture, Construction Management, Interior Design, and Landscape Architecture. All four programs are involved in shaping a dynamic vision for design and construction education that mirrors the collaborative and integrated professional environment of the twenty-first century.

The SDC currently includes 31 full or part-time faculty. The faculty is dedicated to providing the broad-based cultural and theoretical foundations of design and construction management expected from a research-intensive institution of higher learning. With roughly 650 graduate and undergraduate students across the four disciplines, the SDC is one of the largest schools at WSU and is uniquely positioned to engage in interdisciplinary research and teaching. Additionally, as the School is jointly administered by the College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences (CAHNRS) and the College of Engineering and Architecture (CEA), faculty and students have broad exposure to and abundant opportunities to interact with the allied disciplines.

Applicants seeking academic settings where interdisciplinary methods are encouraged will find the WSU School of Design and Construction an ideal place to launch or build upon a research agenda fundamentally concerned with environmental and social responsibility in the built environment.

This position reports administratively to the Construction Management Program Coordinator and SDC Director.

The School of Design and Construction is co-located in the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture (VCEA) and the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences (CAHNRS). This co-location adds substantially to the potential for teaching and research collaborations.

The Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture (VCEA) is focused on creating a sustainable future through breakthroughs in renewable energy, sustainable design, and reliable and clean electricity; preserving the environment; engineering for health; and educating tomorrow’s innovators to address the challenges of the future. It is also committed to offering the best undergraduate and graduate experience and immersing students in a world-class research environment that offers hands-on opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. In December of 2012, the state capital budget allocated funding to begin construction of WSU’s new Clean Technology Laboratory on the Pullman campus, which is expected to intersect prominently with VCEA research in sustainable design, advanced materials, and air and water quality.
