Projected Ten-Year Growth

Tenure-track faculty of ITI are members of academic departments of the School of Engineering. Today we count approximately 30 faculty in the research areas covered by ITI, and expect most or all of these faculty to formally affiliate with ITI as it develops. The projected growth of the School of Engineering over the next ten years should bring this number to 50 or 60 ladder-rank faculty. Research areas in ITI will influence academic departments in their hiring (and in the allocation of full time employment to those departments) but ITI will not recruit ladder-rank faculty of its own.

Research faculty (non-tenure-track) will be recruited, managed and employed via ITI. These faculty are paid primarily with extramural and other "soft" monies, and do not count as FTE(Full-Time Employee's) in the School of Engineering faculty. With the success of CITRIS(Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society) , the projected success of the HDCC and other programs, the development of the various centers of ITI, and the projected increase in industrial partnerships, we expect that the number of research faculty (including research professors, post-doctoral appointments, etc.) will bring an additional 50-60 researchers to ITI over the next ten years. Some of these ITI researchers will come from industry, on assignment to participate in joint research projects with the centers of ITI.

In addition, a staff of 10-20, including programmers, system managers, technical and clerical assistants will be part of the ITI organization.

ITI Space

Space is crucial for the success of ITI. The space within the Engineering 2 building houses some of the non-ladder-rank research faculty, and research staff.This off-campus space is needed immediately, as there is no room on campus for this research enterprise to grow, and procuring off-campus space would ideally bring ITI programs closer to industry so that industry staff may be in residence with ITI research projects. While the space in Engineering II will provide the on campus home for ITI, off-campus space in Silicon Valley (possibly at NASA-Ames) and/or in Scotts Valley or the Coyote Valley will be expected to house other portions of the ITI research projects.
