  The Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture offers three programs: a two-year technical diploma, a B.Sc. and a one year post-degree diploma in Fisheries and Aquaculture. The most common career paths taken by students after graduation include stock assessment, environmental monitoring, research technical support, commercial aquaculture and graduate studies.
Duties: This course introduces hydraulics in relation to aquaculture operations to both diploma and degree students. These students are exposed to plumbing systems including pipe sizing, tank design, pumps, filters, and miscellaneous water treatment options and applications. The laboratory component reinforces the lectures with hands on demonstrations, system designs, and configurations. After learning the basic components, students gain exposure to aquaculture related water treatment facilities both on and off campus. Completion of this course provides the necessary understanding of RAS systems (recirculating aquaculture systems) to enable students to work in this area.
  Candidates must demonstrate commitment to teaching, learning and student success through scholarship and institutional service. Successful candidates will participate in a wide range of activities outside the classroom, including student support; institutional, faculty and departmental committee meetings and other initiatives; and professional activities in keeping with their disciplines in and outside the institution.
Required Qualifications: Masters in Civil Engineering or equivalent degree from an appropriately accredited institution, with specialization in hydraulic systems and a focus on RAS, or an equivalent combination of qualifications and experience. Demonstrated teaching experience. Physical ability to conduct field laboratories.
Preferred Qualifications: PhD in a related field from an appropriately accredited institution, with specialization in RAS and research experience in hydraulic designs. A valid Class 4 BC Driver's License and a confirmed satisfactory driving record (as specified in Vancouver Island University policy and procedures) would be an asset.
