Advisory Board

The Mechanical Engineering Advisory Board (MEAB) was formed in the spring of 2000 to be an active partner in the process of determining program direction and continuous improvement. The department began a set of bi-annual meetings which included a combination of faculty presentations on the curriculum, other academic matters, tours of the laboratories and facilities, and closed meetings with students.

The goal of the MEAB is to help the faculty with the process of revising and achieving the program objectives and outcomes on a continuous basis. MEAB members consist of leaders in industry and government with experience in mechanical engineering and related disciplines.
