Is 3 years industry experience enough to be consider as a full time poly lecturer? Do they look more into your academic result (your degree) or your work experience to date?

It depends from diploma to diploma. For my diploma, the average number of years of working experience is 7.

hi all,

It seems there are some poly lecturers lurking around here.. would like to seek their advice on my situation...

1. i am a senior engineer with 6 yrs industry experience in electrical and electronics engineering, having experiences in different areas of electronic products from R&D to field quality.

2. i am earning around 4k/mth now, excluding bonus. i am thinking of making a switch to become a poly lecturer as i think my current job scope is a mix of technical and managerial. i would prefer more technical hands-on in my job.

3. if i make the switch, which PAX would i fall into?

4. are the interviews very technical? example, asking you to design a opamp on the spot? OR just testing your concept and understanding on the course that you are applying for?

5. will new lecturers be thrown into giving lectures straight away? or is there any training to teach you how to teach?

6. will course materials be provided for lecturers to teach according? or do lecturers have to come up with teaching materials most of the time?

7. how would you rate the job scope allocation? example: teach-50%, project-30%, admin/others-20%.

Sorry for my long post. Thanks in advance!!

3. they'll probably match your last drawn pay, or lower. economy turning worse, and more people are turning to teaching, so it's not you choosing them, it's them choosing you.

4. usually not technical. in fact, you may discover that you actually know more technical stuff than them.

5. both formal training and ojt will be given.

6. both. much of the time, you can re-use existing material. some of the time, you may be asked to develop new material for new subjects.

7. depends on the poly. at 1 poly, i heard that some are doing 100% industry projects. for my case, it's roughly 60% teaching and 40% admin, special projects, committees, this and that. but once you become familiar with the system and culture, you can squeeze in 20% tea break, idle time, personal projects! but it really depends on how good you are. haha.

In terms of industrial projects, what are the lecturer expected to do?

How about working hours? Anyone can share?

Thanks!

no need to self source for lobangs. it's not a sales organization for goodness. but if you are in certain committees such as the one sourcing for internships and industry attachments, you may sometimes "politely ask" fellow lecturers for contacts of organizations that may consider hiring interns. usually, many companies are happy to hire the relatively "cheap" labour, so no worries there.

working hours are superb. i never had it so good. but i do observe that some lecturers couldn't cope with the workload and had to work long hours - i honestly never understood why.

why not spend 1 of your lunch hours at the nearest poly and observe the happy faces there?
