Engineering Advisory Board

The Engineering Advisory Board (EAB) guides and supports the future of the School of Engineering, advising the Dean from the perspective of industry and assisting us to achieve our vision.

As the voice of the customer, the EAB keeps the Dean apprised of changing needs of those who employ the School’s graduates and of the evolution of the engineering profession in general. The School of Engineering is fortunate to have a stellar group of advisors helping to keep our educational programs relevant and promote deeper involvement between the School of Engineering and industry.
