University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) was set up in the United Arab Emirates in 1993 by one of the world's top positioning universities, the University of Wollongong in Australia. Initially known as the Institute for Australian Studies, UOWD is an energetic, dynamic and differing establishment, holding a solid Australian legacy. In the course of recent years we have built up a remarkable record for teaching very employable graduates and picked up a universal notoriety for the quality of our teaching practices.
UOWD is currently seeking Adjunct Lecturer for Computer Science and Engineering to teach both Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses during the Autumn semester 2013.
The following courses are available to be taught by qualified candidates having a Ph. D. degree from a recognised international University. Applicants must have substantial teaching experience in the relevant area. The position is only available to UAE residents that can provide a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from their sponsors.
Given below is the list of available Undergraduate courses:
PHYS030 – Introduction to Physics
Description: This is an introductory foundation Physics subject in the bachelor degree program for engineering. The subject is designed for students who are entering degree program for which a background in physics and mathematics is essential. It prepares and promotes students interest for university physics and engineering subjects. It provides a necessary basis for all students progressing to the first year of university degree subjects in the engineering major. Furthermore, it serves as a pre-requisite subject for students requiring necessary physics skills.
PHYS141- Fundamentals of Physics A
Description: This subject will cover fundamentals of Physics. The information and techniques learnt are widely applicable in all fields of science, including electrical engineering, computer engineering and telecommunications engineering. The basic understanding of the mechanics and physics of various events that touch our lives will continue to be of benefit to our global society and the numerous challenges we face in order to sustain and improve peoples’ quality of life. The subject will be supported by laboratory assignments.
CSCI324 – Human Computer Interface
Description: This subject examines the design evaluation and implementation of interactive computing systems for human use (HCI) and the major phenomena surrounding them. Also considered are joint performance of tasks by humans and machines, structure of human machine communication, social and organisational interactions with machine design, human capabilities to use machines including their learning ability as well as algorithms and programming of the interface itself, engineering concerns that arise in designing interfaces, the process of specification design and implementation of interfaces and design tradeoffs.
MATH291 – Differential Equations
Description: Linear second and higher order differential equations, solution of differential equations by Laplace transform methods. Fourier series, and some special functions (gamma, beta and error functions) will be introduced, together with an introductory solution method to boundary value problems (separation of variables).
MATH020 – Foundation Mathematics B
Description: This subject is designed to:
Consolidate the theory and concepts introduced in math015,
Provide the student with mathematical background for further studies of mathematics and mathematics related subjects,
Develop skills necessary for using standard tables available to students of Mathematics, and
Teach content including trigonometry and related calculus – standard identities, common values of the trigonometric functions, radian measure, arc length, unlimited angles, simple trigonometric equations, graphs of the trigonometric functions, sum of angles, double angles, trigonometric limits, derivatives of trigonometric functions, integrals of trigonometric functions, inverse trigonometric functions, integration using trigonometric substitutions.
Given below is the available list of Postgraduate courses:
