How to become graduate program faculty

The purpose of this page is to inform you what the Graduate Program Faculty do and how to apply to become part of the Graduate Program Faculty for Electrical Engineering programs.

The Graduate Program Faculty are the faculty members of ASU that are approved to be listed as a Chair for doctoral level students. Every program has their own Graduate Program Faculty, and it is possible to be part of the Graduate Program Faculty for multiple programs. Once approved, your name will appear on the Graduate College list that lists all of the faculty members that are approved to be listed as a Chair for a doctoral level student in Electrical Engineering. Doctoral level students and applicants can search through that page to see which faculty members are approved, and might reach out to you with research proposals.
