Advisory Board

The Advisory Board of the Electrical Engineering Department meets three times each year to provide input on academics, research, administration, outreach, advocacy, and development. The Board reviews the graduate and undergraduate curriculum and degree programs, program educational objectives, and program outcomes, as well as offers suggestions to keep them current. The Board evaluates the quality and scope of our research, its relationship to our programs, and its relevancy, and helps guide future directions. The Board recommends ways to build new relationships with industry and to strengthen the existing ones. The current Board Chair is Ron Jew.
