Guest Teach an Undergraduate Engineering Course

Share your expertise, connect with students, and be a part of Dartmouth Engineering's world-class and innovative education.

Dartmouth Engineering is seeking alumni guest lecturers (or visiting faculty) for new undergraduate engineering courses, and invites proposals for courses that focus on topics accessible to a wider Dartmouth student audience, particularly non-engineering majors. As alumni, you have an opportunity to turn real-world experience into meaningful education and introduce students to the creative, fun, and human-centered aspects of engineering.


Who are we looking for?

We're looking for mid-career to senior-level alumni excited about returning to campus to teach a course that is rich in life experience and also meets Dartmouth's rigorous educational expectations. Ideal candidates possess advanced degrees in a relevant field or extensive senior management experience, or a combination of both, and enthusiasm for student-centered teaching.


  • Course abstract, syllabus, and course outline (list of learning objectives optional)
  • Commitment to teaching a full 10-week term of your choice—Summer, Fall, Winter, or Spring
  • Ability/willingness to teach all classes in-person (either Mon/Wed/Fri or Tues/Thurs)
