  • Overview

    Applications are being accepted for an Adjunct Civil Engineering Technician Structural Instructor to teach days at Moraine Park Technical College, Fond du Lac campus.  This position reports to the Associate Dean Manufacturing beginning August, 2016.





    Courses in which adjunct faculty are needed include:

    607-131 Structural Analysis 1 Provides an understanding of the relationship between the external forces applied to a structure and the resulting action on the components of the structure. Topics of study include moment of inertia, stress in a structural member due to force or thermal changes, bending stress, and deflection in beams. Mon. & Wed 8:30-10:30 AM.


    607-122 Mechanical Construction Addresses the fundamental concepts of principal mechanical systems for buildings. Apply basic design principles of heating, air conditioning, ventilation, plumbing, electrical power distribution, and lighting design. Students learn to interpret codes, prints and specifications pertinent to mechanical systems. Introduces LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and Green Building Rating Systems Information is presented on sustainable building practices which can be incorporated into project design, construction, operation and demolition. Applications of BIM and IPD are introduced and applied throughout the course. Mon & Wed 10:30 – 12:30 PM

    607-114 Structural Drafting Provides the necessary knowledge and develops the basic structural drafting skills necessary for entry level positions in the construction industry. Students analyze structural drawings from each of the principal structural trades: concrete, steel, masonry and wood. Students prepare plans for commercial and industrial buildings with CAD techniques. Drawing types addressed are framing plans, plan and section, fabrication drawings and bills of material. Students define terms and methods common to each of the major types of building methods. Mon 1-4PM, Wed 1-2:30PM, Fri 10-11:30AM

    607-178 Revit Introduces the student to the concepts and advantages of BIM modeling over CAD drafting. Exercises include designing a project using Mass Modeling, creating custom walls and objects, and creating a set of building construction documents for a 3 story office building. Other exercises include creating site plans with topography, working with phases, and generating sections and details. Deals with sharing files between multiple users and disciplines through a Central File and important models into Navisworks. Knowledge of computer-aided drafting, construction methods and basic computer skills will be beneficial. Tues 3-7PM

    607-140 Soils & Foundations Explores the fundamental concepts of soil composition and structure, properties of fine grained soil, compaction, soil classification, soil investigation, test and analysis, nuclear moisture-density relationship, bearing ratio, percolation, and seismograph exploration. Includes the testing of materials used in the various fields of construction. Introduces and observes the principal means of performing destructive and non destructive tests through field trips to testing laboratories and classroom activities. Wed 2:30-4PM and Fri 10-11:30AM
