Industrial Advisory Board

The Industry Advisory Board of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering plays an important role in implementing program objectives by providing feedback on immediate industrial needs. These needs must be balanced against the need to identify truly fundamental topics that will serve the student body well in the long term. Technical areas sometimes take second place to a "can-do" attitude, excellent communication skills and the initiative required to teach oneself. Close ties with industry through the coop program, research and consulting and alumni interactions provide valuable program feedback about the skill sets required to function in a working environment.

Meetings with the Industry Advisory Board occur once per semester.
