Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering is a dynamic, ever-changing field. To keep up with industry needs, we have enlisted the help of an Industrial Advisory Board (IAB), which periodically reviews our educational program, provides feedback and makes suggestions for further improvements.

The advisory board includes ECEE alumni from both the undergraduate and graduate programs who are now in leadership positions in companies. Current and past board members have generously contributed their time, unique skills and perspectives to a variety of collaborative pursuits with faculty and staff.

With the department already implementing many of their recommended strategies, the Industrial Advisory Board will remain actively involved in evaluating their success, as well as helping develop and drive future initiatives.
