Administrative Dean of the Talwar College of Engineering and Computer Sciences

Indiana Tech Fort Wayne, Indiana, United States

Indiana Tech seeks applications and nominations of outstanding leaders for its next Dean of the Talwar College of Engineering and Computer Sciences. The Dean will have the opportunity to develop cutting-edge programs in Engineering and Computer Sciences and continue to build on the historical successes of this college.

Indiana Tech is a four-year private, not-for-profit university regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. The university delivers programs on campus, at eight regional locations, and online, leading to certificates and degrees at the Associate, Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Ph.D. levels for both traditional and non-traditional students. Indiana Tech has three academic units: the College of Business; the Talwar College of Engineering and Computer Sciences, and the College of Arts and Sciences. The traditional undergraduate student body includes 1,500 students who matriculate on the beautiful grounds of the residential main campus adjacent to downtown Fort Wayne, the second largest city in Indiana, where revitalization in recent years has made it a regional success story. More than 4,000 students are enrolled in the university’s online programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The Talwar College of Engineering and Computer Sciences provides a career-focused, hands-on educational experience that inspires students to find new and better ways to address the challenges of the 21st century. The new Dean will have the opportunity to provide strong leadership and advocacy for faculty and staff to enhance and elevate academic programs at the university. The next Dean will be the principal champion for shaping and realizing an innovative vision and strategic direction for academics at the Talwar College. The next Dean will receive broad support for a creative and aggressive approach to building, launching, and growing new programs. Indiana Tech moves rapidly on new initiatives, but not at the expense of quality. This “can-do” culture gives the next Dean a chance to affect change rather quickly, at a speed not often seen in higher education.      

The campus community seeks a new Dean with vision and an entrepreneurial spirit – a leader who demonstrates a commitment to the mission and values of Indiana Tech. The successful candidate will possess a Ph.D. in a field of engineering or computer science from a regionally accredited institution of higher education. Industry experience is not required but would be a plus. The successful candidate will have a strong academic background in teaching, service, and professional activities, and a proven track record in academic administration, with specific experience in assessment processes, accreditation procedures, and new program development to be appointed as a tenured professor in the university.

To ensure full consideration, completed applications are due by May 1, 2024. The search page, which includes the Executive Search Profile and application and nomination links, is located here.
