Six ECE Students Named Future Faculty Fellows

Six ECE Students Named Future Faculty Fellows

Six graduate students from the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department have been selected to participate in the Clark School's Future Faculty Program (FFP). FFP was introduced to increase the number of Clark School Ph.D. graduates who obtain academic positions, and in particular, faculty positions in prestigious engineering schools. The program is also intended to improve the preparation of students for academic careers so that they can better succeed once they obtain such a position.

The six ECE students who will enter the FFP program are:

Feng Han (advised by Prof. K. J. Ray Liu)

George Zaki (advised by Prof. Shuvra Bhattacharyya)

Omer Ozel (advised by Prof. Sennur Ulukus)

• Ravi Garg (advised by Prof. Min Wu)

Timir Baran Datta (advised by Prof. K. J. Ray Liu)

Yang Gao (advised by Prof. K. J. Ray Liu)

The program is highly selective. Fellows are chosen by an anonymous committee based on the applicants' motivation for becoming a faculty member and potential for securing a tenure-track faculty position at a top-50 engineering school. Students admitted to the program are designated as Future Faculty Fellows and receive a supplementary stipend each semester in the program. The FFP consists of a sequence of three one-credit training seminars, a teaching practicum and a research mentoring practicum. The program takes between three and five semesters to complete depending on the timing of the practicums.

The following ECE faculty served on the FFP committee: Victor Granatstein (Chair), Don Yeung, Pamela Abshire, and Min Wu
