The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering's Advisory Council was created to help guide the School through the challenges of the next few years, and is made up of members who represent a broad spectrum of interests and backgrounds. The Advisory Council meets annually to discuss important issues facing the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. We have found that outside evaluations help us keep our programs fresh and forward moving.
The Advisory Council is composed of people (often alumni) from industry, research labs, and government services. Members normally serve a three-year term and review our programs, new hires, and the School's direction and resources at an annual meeting during the spring semester.
A typical agenda would include welcoming talks from the Dean of the College of Engineering and the Director of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Presentations about our instructional programs are given by the director of graduate studies, the associate director and director of undergraduate studies, and the assistant director of the M.Eng. program. New faculty give presentations on their work. The second day includes executive sessions, informational talks by faculty, and exit interviews. As a follow-up to the meetings, the council chair provides an appraisal on their findings including commendations, concerns, and recommendations.
