The College of Engineering is home to 52 postdocs, who make valuable contributions to Cyclone engineering research.
“Postdoctoral associates are key members of the College of Engineering’s research efforts,” said Arun Somani, associate dean for research. “Postdocs bring specialized experience and knowledge and offer creative, fresh ideas and approaches to their research groups and serve as role models. They also help teach and mentor graduate and undergraduate students in hands-on experiential engineering experiences.”
