Before joining Colorado School of Mines as a Teaching Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (2016), Dr. Arkadan was a Research Professor at Marquette University, Milwaukee WI, (2014–2016). He also served as Professor at and President of Rafik Hariri University, Mechref, Lebanon (2004-2014). Prior to that, he joined Marquette University as an Assistant Professor (1988) where he became an Associate Professor (1993) and Professor (1998). Dr. Arkadan is the author of over 100 technical papers. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and a Fellow of the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society (ACES). Dr. Arkadan chaired several international conferences including the First IEEE International Electric Machines and Drives Conference (IEEE-IEMDC) held in Milwaukee, WI (May, 1997) and the IEEE Conference on Electromagnetic Field Computations  (IEEE-CEFC) held in Chicago, IL (May, 2010). Currently he is the Editorial Board Chair of IEEE-CEFC 2016, to be held in Miami Florida, November 13-16, 2016. Also, he is the chair of IEEE-CEFC International Steering Committee, ACES Journal Associate Editor, and a member of ACES Board of Directors.
