Our department is fortunate to benefit from the support and guidance of several advisory boards. Industry leaders, some of whom are our graduates, advise us on curriculum and offer guidance about student recruitment, retention, and employment.

They are our fiercest advocates—celebrating our students, inspiring real-world partnerships, and funding key initiatives. Their success and continued involvement demonstrates our distinction.
