Industrial Advisory Board

Our industrial advisory board (IAB) provides valuable input on our curriculum and helps focus initiatives that the department undertakes to improve our relationship with industry as well as provide our students with a world-class education.

Our IAB brings expertise from a variety of industry stakeholders. IAB members attend an annual meeting to learn about developments in the department and provide strategic guidance.

Alumni are key figures on our industrial advisory board, helping us to keep abreast of and adapt to the needs of industry. Their contributions to our department have created many scholarship opportunities for our future engineers, and have allowed us to greatly improve our facilities and the learning opportunities for future generations.
