The School of Engineering Industrial and Professional Advisory Councils and the Industrial Advisory Board support the School in several ways. They help the School meet the constantly changing landscape of engineering education, provide student internship opportunities, help assess strengths and weaknesses of current curriculum, bring contemporary issues and directions to the attention of the administration and faculty, help students develop employment contacts and add credibility to the engineering programs.
If you are interested in serving on the School of Engineering Industrial Advisory Board or a Departmental Advisory Council, please contact Karen Wicks in the Dean's office for more information at 618.650.5020 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
School of Engineering Industrial Advisory Board
Willem F. Bakker, Executive Director

Innovate St. Louis
"I have been active on Advisory Boards for both the Department of Construction and the School of Engineering for many years. Being involved at the advisory level as a professional and SIUE alumnus has allowed me to give back to the department and school that formed the foundation of my career. It is a rewarding experience to work with the other professionals on the Advisory Board to make the SIUE School of Engineering and the individual departments the best they can be."
"SIUE continues to grow and evolve and has become "the place" to go to school. I'm proud to be a part of this. The Advisory Board allows me to stay in touch professionally with the Dean, professors, students and fellow alumni. Our company relies on SIUE as a resource for outstanding engineering graduates, and we are able to provide input and advice on our educational needs. We have effective communication on the Advisory Board, sharing ideas on how to improve our industry through the University and how to improve the University through the industry. Bringing these ideas together helps both parties and the Advisory Board allows this connection. "
