Five ECE Students Named Future Faculty Fellows

Five ECE Students Named Future Faculty Fellows

Five graduate students from the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department were selected to participate in the Clark School’s 2013 Future Faculty Fellows 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 further prepare students for academic careers so they find success after obtaining such a position.

 

The five ECE students chosen for the FPP are:

Andrew Berkovich (advised by Prof. Agis Iliadis)

Xiaoyu Chu (advised by Prof. K.J. Ray Liu)

Maya Kabkab (advised by Richard La)

Pritam Mukherjee (advised by Prof. Sennur Ulukus)

Tsung-Hsueh Lee (advised by Pamela Abshire)

 

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.
