Faculty, Tenure-Line

Penn State’s College of Engineering, Penn State Law, and Penn State’s School of International Affairs are engaging in a joint cluster hire of multiple faculty for its new interdisciplinary Law, Policy, and Engineering (LPE) Initiative. The LPE Initiative is administratively housed within the College of Engineering’s School of Engineering Design, Technology, and Professional Programs (SEDTAPP) and is a strategic collaborative effort between all three disciplines to meet Penn State’s mission of impacting the world and addressing major societal issues. Solutions to many of today’s challenges lie at the interface between engineering, policy, and legal constructs. The LPE Initiative will develop and offer an innovative and ambitious set of new degrees, certificates, and courses, supported by cross-disciplinary research and scholarly collaborations that will propel Penn State to national and international leadership.
