Colleges consider adjunct engineering professors to be part-time employees. Their position is only valid as long as the course is active, generally for the length of a semester. It is true that adjunct professors are excluded from the full-time benefits awarded to tenured collegiate teaching positions. Still, their job allows for a level of freedom not extended to other faculty members.
The nature of adjunct engineering jobs are very flexible. They are in control of when they work, how often, and for which classes. There are also opportunities for online courses if that works better. Classroom duties for adjunct professors are similar to that of a full-time professor. They prepare and conduct lectures, assign and grade work, and provide feedback during office hours. Positions only begin to vary when you consider committee obligations and research responsibilities.
