The academy are looking for a strong practitioner, with previous leadership experience, to teach on a reduced timetable while leading the large department. Ideally, the successful candidate would be an engineering specialist, but the academy would be interested in hearing from a candidate with any technology discipline as their specialism, so long as the candidate has a strong working understanding of the other facets of technology.
