Advisory Board

The Industrial Engineering Advisory Board is comprised of industry representatives from the Pee Dee region of South Carolina. Members of the board are selected by current board members and the IE program faculty to serve a 3-year term, during which time they are charged to provide feedback, information and opportunity to the IE program, its faculty and its students.

The Advisory Board meets once per academic year to review student learning objectives, outcomes and assessments from the previous calendar year. As part of its function, the Advisory Board also serves as a vital part of the IE program’s ABET initiatives.
