Industrial advisory board

Our Industrial Advisory Board comprises academics and representatives from industry. The Board provides a strategic view from the industrial community on our research, student education, innovation, and external engagement activities.

Our Board’s primary aims are to inform our curriculum design to improve the employability of our graduates and to increase external involvement in our research.

Board members review our student education with the aim of improving the student experience and ensuring that our graduates’ technical and employability skills are well matched to industry’s needs. Board members also act as ambassadors for the School and help to boost our profile and reputation with both national and international bodies.

Our Board membership reflects key sectors for our graduates’ employment. The industrial links we maintain through our Board enable us to offer industrial placement and networking opportunities.
