Nine ECE Students Named Future Faculty Fellows

Nine graduate students from the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department have been selected to participate in the Clark School's new 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 ECE students who will participate in the program are: Alfred Haas, Sabrina Lin, Nicole Nelson, Aswin Sankaranarayanan, Karim Seddik, Ashwin Swaminathan, Jayakar Charles Thangaraj, Beibei Wang, and Enlu Zhou.

Students admitted to the program are designated as Future Faculty Fellows and receive a supplementary stipend of $2,000 for each semester in the program, totaling up to $10,000 over the course of the program, in addition to other financial support they may have. 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.

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.
