Wilkes University

Industrial Advisory Board

The current Industrial Advisory Board for the Division of Engineering is being transitioned into two technical advisory committees. Each group will provide guidance in their technical areas of expertise to support technical success in the mechanical and electrical engineering departments.  

Additionally, a strategic advisory board is being created to support the college and its programs. Student advisory groups are being added to support college programs as student interest warrants. More details will follow.
