Tenure Process

Each tenure and promotion case is evaluated individually within the context, constraints, and circumstances of the faculty member under consideration. Note that it is possible to stop your tenure clock under certain conditions.

Sabbatical Request Process

Sabbaticals can be requested for one semester at full pay or two semesters at half pay. Faculty members requesting sabbatical must have completed 12 semesters of consecutive full-time service to be eligible.

Completed forms should be submitted to the Department Chair for initial review.

MAE Student Advising

Undergraduate

SEAS uses a 2-tier advising structure:

  • SEAS advisors, located in 410 Bonner, advise freshman, sophomores, and first-semester transfer students. They are also the experts on University and SEAS policies. 
  • The MAE Undergraduate Coordinator, Kelsey Trautwein, advises juniors and seniors and is the expert on MAE-specific policies.

In addition, Teaching Professors serve as MAE Faculty Mentors who assist students with questions related to career goals, research and graduate school.

Graduate

Each student is assigned a preliminary advisor upon admission who will help the student decide in which courses to enroll the first year. Preliminary advisors are members of the Graduate Studies Committee. During the first semester, students will meet with MAE department faculty to find a common research area or interest and identify an academic advisor.

To recruit graduate students, contact the Graduate Studies Director for recent applications via UBbox.

MAE Website

The MAE Website is managed, temporarily, by James Friedman of the SEAS Office of Communications.

Faculty Profiles

You will work with James to add/modify content to your MAE Faculty Profile located on the MAE Website. We follow specific branding standards regarding information and layout.

Personal or Lab Websites

If you decide to have your own personal and/or lab website, you will be responsible for creating and managing this. UBIT offers suggestions and basic guidance on this.
