Advisory Council

The Mechanical Engineering Department formed an Industry Advisory Committee in November 2014 to assist the department in the assessment and evaluation of the Program Educational Objectives and the Student Outcomes. The department will be asking from them on a regular basis their feedback, opinions, and advice regarding the current trends in the industry, and updates on the latest technological development in their respective areas of expertise to guide the department in updating the course contents of the fundamental and professional Mechanical Engineering courses especially the twelve-unit of elective courses.
