Based on requests from students, we have organized a Preparing Future engineering Faculty (PFeF) program for this Fall 2020 semester in cooperation with EASE (ECE graduate student organization).  If you are interested in a career in academia and want to learn more about the application, interview, negotiation, and tenure process for an assistant professor in engineering, then this should be a very helpful program for you.  There will be eight 1-hour sessions (two per month from Sep. to Dec.) split between seminar-style presentations with Q&A and panel discussions with Q&A.  The program is open to all Pratt PhD students and postdocs who register by Wednesday, Sep. 2 at 5pm.  Here are the registration and meeting details:

  • Meeting Dates/Time: Sep.-Dec. 2020, 1st & 3rd Thursdays, noon-1pm
    • 9/3, 9/17, 10/1, 10/15, 11/5, 11/19, 12/3, 12/17
  • Meeting Place:  Zoom — link provided after you register
  • Link to register for PFeF:

Those who register and attend at least 7 out of the 8 sessions will receive a certificate of completion (great for the CV!).  The attached flyer has more information.
