ACO Program Faculty are appointed by the ACO Coordinating Committee, and such appointments are normally renewed annually. ACO Program Faculty take an active role in running the program. This includes, but is not limited to, teaching core and advanced ACO courses, developing new courses, supervising students, and serving on ACO Committees. ACO Program Faculty may be drawn from any Georgia Tech unit, and, when justified, may come from outside of Georgia Tech. Any ACO Program Faculty may serve as a dissertation advisor of any ACO student regardless of departmental affiliation.
