The Mechanical Engineering Technology Industrial Advisory Board for the Department of Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology provides valuable guidance and information related to current practices and emerging trends in the industries where our graduates work. Advisory board members come from a wide variety of industries and bring with them a diverse set of backgrounds and experiences. This wealth of knowledge is used to keep our curriculum current and help us make sure that we are preparing our students for the challenges of the global workplace.
The board generally meets each semester and the members participate in Senior Project presentations as evaluators, meet with students to get feedback on their experiences, and provide general advice and mentoring.
We are very appreciative of the efforts of our board members and the benefits they provide to our students and the entire department.
