Industry Advisory Board

The Computer Science program has an advisory board that is composed of industry members located throughout the region. The board provides invaluable feedback and support which allows us to remain current and cutting edge. The board meets bi-yearly with faculty and students from the Computer Science Program. In the Spring meeting, undergraduate students enrolled in the Senior Capstone course (CSC 404) present their final projects to the board for feedback during the College of Engineering and Science's Senior Design Conference.
