In order to reinforce partnership with the community/industry/market to keep getting ongoing advice about the improvement of its programs and its strategic development, the “College of Engineering, CoE” has formed its “Industrial Advisory Board, IAB” in November 2015.

 

The IAB main roles are to provide advices on:

  • College Program needs and new programs to meet the industry needs
  • Program Outcomes Assessment and Achievement
  • Market Modifications which affect the employment of graduates
  • Scientific Research Outcomes and available research funding agencies
  • Strengthening the relations with the community and establish effective institutional partnership.
  • Establishing a connection with some companies regarding the internships/trainings for students, employment for graduates, and research opportunities for the instructors.

 

The IAB met regularly (usually once per academic semester). So far, the IAB held four meetings on:

  • 10 May 2016
  • 06 December 2016
  • 17 May 2017
  • 07 December 2017
