Be part of shaping the future! There are several ways for employers to actively engage through advisory committees, applied research, awards, projects, guest speaking and career events.

Advisory Committees

Each program has an Advisory Committee, comprised of a broad cross-section of industry representatives, who contribute to curriculum development and strategic program direction. Members meet once or twice per year to discuss employment and technological trends, and changes in industry, to help ensure our programs remain current and relevant to the needs of industry.
