External Advisory Council

The External Advisory Council is a group of selected individuals with a balance from industry and national laboratories with varying terminal academic degrees and at various stages of their careers. The EAC meets twice a year for one-day meetings to discuss the activities and direction of the department and has been critical in listening to students and faculty and providing feedback to ensure our department is moving towards continuous improvement.
