The Faculty of the CES is composed of both military and civilian instructors who provide courses pertinent to the Civil Engineer career field. CES's courses focus in management, environmental, and technology.
Direct Hire vs. Pipeline
Faculty members are hired one of two ways; direct hire or pipeline. Direct hire is for individuals interested in becoming a faculty member and have already completed a master’s degree or PhD program. Pipeline or faculty prep is for future faculty members who have not completed an advanced degree program. Individuals selected are sent to earn a master’s degree or PhD at a Civilian Institute (CI) or through the Air Force Institute of Technology's graduate school with a 3 year follow on assignment as a CES instructor.
Application & PCS Timeline
The available positions are managed and controlled by AFPC. Notification of vacancies are sent through myPers via the 32E Assignments Officer page. Advertisement for the vacant positions occurs in the spring each year. After completing the application requirements, AFIT may select you for an interview. Interviews are held during the summer before the CE Development Team. If selected, AFIT communicates with the CE Development Team (held in early summer) to ensure your next assignment is to AFIT. If selected for direct hire you will PCS to AFIT during the next year. If selected for a pipeline position you will PCS to a CI school the following summer. For example if you are selected for a pipeline position July of this year, you will PCS to school in August of next year.
