Industrial Liaison Committee

To develop and enhance our degree programmes, promote closer academic/industry research collaborations and examine new educational ideas we have a dedicated group of senior engineers (Industrial Advisory Board - IAB) from a wide range of companies in the electrical and electronic engineering. The IAB works closely with our academics to o ensure that our degrees reflect current developments and industry skills requirements, making a crucial contribution to the successful development of our students.
