Advisory Board

Advisory Board Chair Jeff Niew leading a meeting

The College of Engineering advisory board, established in 1980, brings representatives from government, industry, and academia into the life of the college. This board meets twice a year to:

  • Provide external feedback on areas of curriculum improvement to better prepare our students
  • Participate in long-range strategic planning
  • Solicit funding to support facilities, research, scholarships, chaired professorships, and other initiatives
  • Support career placement and participate in student events

The advisory board meets twice a year, usually in October and May, on the UIC campus. The next meeting is scheduled for October 7, 2019.
