Q and A: Obtaining a tenure-track engineering faculty position

While pursuing a doctoral degree in engineering takes years of discipline, research and learning, those who remain dedicated and graduate gain a variety of opportunities. After making new discoveries through research and learning under a doctoral degree mentor, new graduates then need to decide what direction to take their career.

One such option for those interested in a career in academia is conducting research and working at a university through a tenure-track position. Teaching the next generation of engineers while making new discoveries through one of these jobs is exactly what Anwarul Sifat did.
