  • Teaching Assistants - ECE 3400 (Intelligent Physical Systems)

    Ithaca, NY

    I am looking for undergraduate TAs for ECE 3400 (Intelligent Physical Systems) for this Fall 2019. Expected worked hours are about 15 hours/week (varying). The position can be for hourly pay ($12/hour), or for course credit. You must have taken ECE 3400 in the past to be considered as TA. 
    The work related to the course includes:

    • Help with organizing the lab, prepare the lab sessions
    • Oversee two lab sessions per week (2-3 TAs per lab session) prior to Fall Break, subject to change
    • Possibility to oversee additional lab sessions after Fall Break (typically 1 TA per additional lab session), subject to change
    • Help with the final project (robot, as you know!) throughout the semester
    • Help with the final competition
    • Possible grading of material
    • Overall help with the course and labs

    There are currently five lab sessions scheduled for the course: Monday and Friday afternoons (1:25 PM – 4:25 PM), and Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings (7:30 PM – 10:30 PM). Your lab assignments will be determined when we have our initial all-hands group meeting. 
    I expect to work with reliable, hard-working TAs. As you know, this course is rather heavy and we need to be able to rely on one another on all points.
    Please email Carl Poitras (cbp8) if you are serious and interested!
