Advanced manufacturing is a vital economic force in the United States and likely to grow over the next decade. Economic expansion and baby boomer retirements will likely create a need to fill 3.4 million manufacturing jobs in the nation by 2025. ECPI University is addressing this demand by building on the University’s educational and technical engagement expertise. We are currently seeking a Director of Advanced Manufacturing to lead these efforts. This industry professional will engage in industry relevant research, build technical expertise through hands-on experiential learning, foster curricula that provide multi-disciplinary experiences for students, and leverage partnerships with advanced manufacturing organizations.
The Director will create the vision, develop, and implement a strategic plan that serves the needs of the University and advanced manufacturing industries. Furthermore, the Director will build connections and relationships between ECPI University and key industry leaders from the advanced manufacturing industries, keep abreast of relevant state educational and workforce‐development programs, pursue funding opportunities, develop metrics and benchmarks on progress towards goals, represent ECPI University at key events that have a focus on advanced manufacturing, and provide administrative oversight to the academic programs at ECPI University directly linked to advanced manufacturing.
Successful candidates will have at least ten years of full‐time experience working in or with the advanced manufacturing industry. Crucially, they will have strong analytical and communication skills and be a highly effective leader and ambassador for the University.
