While the primary responsibilities are teaching, continued scholarship and collaboration is encouraged for VAPs. Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in electrical or computer engineering or a closely related field and have demonstrated they can effectively teach a range of computer engineering courses to a diverse set of undergraduate students.
