Throughthis network, we expand opportunities for flexible,student-centered learning and collaborative, solutions-focusedresearch.Northeastern’s comprehensive array of undergraduate and graduateprograms— in a variety of on-campus and online formats—lead todegrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Amongthese, we offer more than 195 multi-discipline majors and degreesdesigned to prepare students for purposeful lives andcareers.About the Opportunity:The Khoury College of Computer Sciences and Department ofElectrical and Computer Engineering (College of Engineering) atNortheastern University invite applications for multiple positionsat the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor/Associate TeachingProfessor/ Teaching Professor in the Master’s Degree and the AlignBridge Program at The Roux Institute at Northeastern in Portland,Maine beginning in January 2021, June 2021, or September2021.The Roux Institute represents an exciting expansion of NortheasternUniversity’s global network to Portland, Maine. The mission of theRoux Institute is to develop and attract new talent to Maine,making Portland a hub for tech and the life sciences. In thisenvironment, teaching faculty will build out and offer traditionalcourses and have the opportunity to develop more customizededucational experiences.The Align Bridge Program’s mission is to close America’s techdiversity gap. We are reinventing Computer Science post-graduateeducation with an innovative Experiential Masters in CS forNon-Computer Science Majors. Scaling the Align program is a highpriority initiative of Northeastern University’s Khoury College ofComputer Sciences.Women represent more than 50% of all bachelor’s degree recipientsbut only 19.5% of CS graduates. Similarly, minoritized groupsrepresent 25% of all bachelor’s degree recipients but just 10% ofCS graduates. By closing these gaps, we will address not only amajor economic issue, but also a profound issue of social equityand inclusion.The Align MS in CS program differs from a typical MS in CS programin several ways. It is- designed for students who did not earn an undergraduate degree inCS,- coupled with Northeastern’s famous co-op program to provide apaid 6-8 month work experience in one of the college’s network of500+ corporate partners,- taught at night year-round so students can keep up with othercommitments and finish in 2.5 years, and- offered locally at tech hubs across the country: Boston, SanFrancisco, Seattle, Silicon Valley, and Portland, ME.Our 5 year pilot to date has already demonstrated a graduation rateof 91%, with 100% employment and average salaries exceeding$100,000. Unlike code academies, our graduates are prepared fortech leadership career paths. Unlike undergraduate programs, theprogram takes only 2.5 years to complete. The Align program isnearing 300 graduates, with over 1000 more students currentlyenrolled. 41% of Align graduates and 53% of current Align studentsare women, and 8% of current Align students are members ofminoritized groups. It is the ideal onramp for bringing a diversityof race, gender and thought to America’s tech workforce.In addition to a commitment to a diverse student body, Align hasalso built a diverse faculty to act as role models and leaders incomputer science education.

first_imgBath planning for November start date, while Tyneside looks set to begin in 2021, plans showBath and Tyneside have each moved forward with plans for the introduction of their respective Clean Air Zones (CAZs).In Bath, a city centre CAZ is proposed to commence on 4 November. Coaches and buses that do not meet Euro VI standards will be subject to a £100 daily charge. £9 per day will be levied on operators of non-compliant M1 and M2 minibuses, Bath and North East Somerset Council (BANES) says.BANES has submitted its plans to the government and hopes they will be approved by 14 February.It is “working closely with bus operators to help them to secure funding from the government” to retrofit or repower existing fleets, according to a report on the CAZ public consultation. BANES anticipates that all local buses will be compliant by the time the CAZ is introduced.For coaches, the report says that financial support for upgrades will be available to operators in the BANES area and those of neighbouring local authorities. More information will be released when it is available.Tyneside plans to introduce its CAZ in 2021. Non-Euro VI coaches and buses will be subject to a £50 daily charge to enter. The CAZ’s extent has been substantially reduced from that originally proposed. It now captures Newcastle city centre and four bridges over the River Tyne.Confirmation of Tyneside CAZ funding provisions for upgrading existing vehicles is awaited, but money will be available subject to government approval. It is proposed that up to £16,000 per vehicle will be made available for non-compliant coaches and buses, according to CAZ plans.Among exemptions being considered is one to cover pre-Euro VI hybrids. Additionally, a sunset period will apply to vehicles awaiting installation of retrofit equipment.last_img read more
