Program Description

Transfer your leadership and academic skills to an exciting new University in Uzbekistan! 

An international, English-speaking, American-model University in Uzbekistan aspires to educate students to the highest international standards and to train personnel in areas such as mining, metallurgy, gas chemistry, petrochemicals, and a variety of engineering disciplines, as well as entrepreneurship, management, and leadership.

As an engineering and science University, it strives to meet a severe need for the development of local technological skills and expertise within Uzbekistan in engineering and science, to answer the demands of the country’s newly evolving economy. The mining and energy (particularly gas and oil) sectors make up a significant share of Uzbekistan’s GDP. 

The Foundation Year program at the University is a bridge program between high school and admission into undergraduate degree programs. The Dean of Foundation Program leads and supports all Faculty in the program to ensure that they successfully implement methodology, techniques, and classroom management that are skills-based, student-centered, communicative, and interactive. They must be proficient in the use of technology, and, once trained, be able to use the online technology platforms for student record keeping. Since all record keeping, including attendance, assignments, and all quizzes, tests, and examinations is done online, the faculty must keep abreast of any training that is given in those areas.

Faculty members are expected to participate, in one form or another, in continuous professional development training which is conducted prior to and during each academic year. Engagement is the keyword; faculty are expected to be focused on truly engaging the students in English, study skills, and the soft skills comprised in the core competencies. The University is looking for a Dean to oversee the faculty and foundation year curriculum for successful student transition into the University's degree seeking programs. The students’ weekly program involves pre-collegiate coursework of direct instruction in English (verbal and written), Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics.
