The University of Arizona College of Engineering is welcoming an especially large class of new faculty this semester. Their expertise ranges from quantum computing to smart cities to mine ventilation to energy storage. This class also includes some of the first hires for the college’s new software engineering degree program.
“We welcome an exciting class of 16 new tenured, tenure track and career track faculty,” said Kathleen Melde, associate dean of faculty affairs and inclusion and professor of electrical and computer engineering. “Three serve in leadership roles as the department heads for AME, ECE, and MGE. Each one of these new faculty has post-PhD experience, bringing in our most collectively experienced cohort of new faculty.”
