The Applied Engineering Sciences Alumni Advisory Board facilitates the exchange of ideas between Board members and the faculty and students of the Applied Engineering Sciences program. The board focuses on the following objectives to continuously improve the AES program and the experience for students.

Alumni Board AES Program Objectives

  • Improve quality of the educational experience of AES students
  • Improve employment opportunities of AES students
  • Improve program camaraderie and identity for AES students and alumni
  • Create undergraduate research grant opportunities for AES students
  • Expand student scholarship offerings
  • Expand corporate sponsorship of AES design day and other AES projects.

The Board consists of graduates of the major, as well as several engineering faculty and administrators who are actively involved with the program. The Board advises the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies and the Program Director on specific matters identified by the Board Chair or suggested by Board Members. These include curriculum matters, mentorship to current students, development/partnership activities with program alumni, assistance with corporate relations and program promotion, and providing another voice in the development of policy recommendations.
