PhD Student Colin Miller accepted into UMD Future Faculty Program

My faceMechanical Engineering Ph.D. student Colin Miller, advised by Professor Michael Gollner in Fire Protection Engineering was recently accepted into the Future Faculty Program! The A. James Clark School of Engineering’s Future Faculty Program prepares doctoral students for career-long success in the academic world as mentors and researchers. Participants build skills in areas such as technical and grant writing, curriculum development, teaching, research, oral presentations, applying for academic positions, and interviewing. The program, which includes seminars, a teaching practicum, and a research mentoring practicum, takes three to five semesters to complete. Past group member Dr. Ajay V. Singh, now at Stanford University was also a participant in the program.

Congratulations again to Colin!
