Oregon State University, Oregon’s premier research-intensive university, seeks a dynamic and collaborative leader as Head for the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). The School Head will work closely with the Dean and the leadership team of the College of Engineering (COE) on an ambitious agenda to address some of the world’s most complex technological challenges in areas such as artificial intelligence, transparent electronics, renewable energy, end user software, faster wireless and computing technologies, and big data. The Head will help EECS identify future areas of growth and investment and will be a leader in the College and the University during an exciting era of rising enrollment, increased research productivity, and greater impact.

EECS provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art education that prepares over 3,000 undergraduate, 225 Ph.D., and 228 Master’s students for successful careers in industry and academia. Computer Science and Electrical Engineering are two of the largest graduate programs within the university, with outstanding research programs in the areas of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Data Science and Engineering, Electronic Materials and Devices, Integrated Electronics, Energy Systems, Cybersecurity, Communications and Signal Processing, Networking and Computer Systems, Software Engineering and Human Computer Interaction, Programming Languages, Theoretical Computer Science, Health Engineering and Computer Graphics and Visualization. EECS is also home to an on-line post-baccalaureate degree in Computer Science, which is the only one of its kind in the nation. EECS has over 50 tenured/tenure-track faculty and more than 40 percent of current faculty have won young investigator/CAREER awards. EECS executes over $12 million in research expenditures each year. The EECS faculty have more than 30 collaborative research projects with faculty from all schools and departments within the College of Engineering as well as with almost all colleges at OSU, and with many other universities around the world. EECS also maintains strong industry partnerships that create a pipeline for graduates and keep the curriculum and research relevant. The School has been experiencing a rapid growth in the number of faculty and students that is expected to continue in the future.

As a member of the College’s senior leadership team, the Head of EECS will be critical to the future success of the College and the University. Dean Scott Ashford, who assumed leadership of the College in 2014, leads it on its ambitious plans to broaden its prominence nationally and internationally. Each School Head serves alongside the other four School Heads on the COE senior leadership team and plays a key role in aligning their respective school with the mission of the College and guiding the College to achieve greater success. The successful Head of EECS will:

  - Forge a shared vision for EECS
  - Enhance academic excellence and support growth of academic programs
  - Deepen existing industry and donor partnerships while exploring and developing new relationships
  - Advance the School’s commitment to inclusivity and collaboration
  - Articulate and promote the value of EECS as a critical component of the College of Engineering
  - Lead, manage, and ensure the financial and organizational strength of the School 

Julie Filizetti is leading the search with Nate Brewer.
