Advisory Board

The Biomedical Engineering Department hosted its first meeting with their Industrial Advisory Board in early May 2014. The advisory board serves as an outside voice, helping to steer the development of the program to ensure that industry needs are satisfied through proper training and education of the students. Annual meetings will be held to certify that the development and evolution of the program curriculum will coincide with the growth of the biomedical engineering field.
