A Purdue ECE professor has been named a University Faculty Scholar (UFS). Prof. Yung-Hsiang Lu is among six faculty members university-wide to be recognized for their outstanding performance.

The UFS program, offered through the Office of the Provost, recognizes outstanding faculty at the West Lafayette campus who are on an accelerated path for academic distinction. Eligible faculty are full professors who have been in that rank for no more than five years at the time of designation and tenured associate professors. In addition to meeting university criteria, Engineering UFS nominees must demonstrate impact and evidence of the impact of their work, as well as a compelling vision of the potential impact of future activities, that is supported by external reference letters. Members of the Engineering Named Professorship Committee review nominations and make recommendations to the Dean of Engineering.
University Faculty Scholars are appointed for a nonrenewable five-year term and receive an annual $10,000 discretionary allocation.
