Why do industry leaders volunteer as partners?
Companies and professionals partner regularly with the department in a variety of ways. They are members of the Industry Advisory Board to help us ensure the curriculum meets or exceeds the expectations for accreditation by ABET; to actively participate as guest speakers in the classroom, and judges during the Senior Design Day; and to assist whenever possible to maintain state-of-the-practice laboratory setups. Industry partners benefit greatly from sponsoring student projects as they interact closely with emerging talent and identify potential employees. Finally, opportunities exist to collaborate with faculty and graduate students on applied research that seeks to solve engineering problems with the technology of the day.
If you are a local engineering professional or company who would like to partner with the department on a student project or research initiative, contact Dr. Seifollah Nasrazadani at 940-565-2022 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
