External Advisory Board (EAB)
MATE's External Advisory Board (EAB) is composed of representatives from industries, entrepreneurships, and education. The sectors our EAB members represent include aerospace, biomedical engineering, design, education, microelectronics, non-profits, and sustainable/renewable energy. Many members are also MATE alumni.
EAB members help keep us up to date on current and future needs our students will face when they start their careers. They provide advice and counsel in such matters as curriculum and long-term planning for needs our graduates can be better prepared to address. EAB members also share their expertise with our students and offer informal mentoring when they come to campus twice a year for board meetings.
Please note that we are still building this table of information about our EAB members.
