The Engineering Advisory Council (EAC), formed in 1983, is composed of leaders of business, industry, government, and the research and engineering education communities who volunteer their time, expertise and counsel to help chart the future course of the College of Engineering. The members are a source of external advice and guidance for the College of Engineering’s instructional and research programs.

The presence of EAC members at the semi-annual meetings on the College campus provides faculty, staff and students access to the developing ideas and directions of an international and diverse group. At the same time, these meetings display to the outside world what is happening at a modern research university of the first rank.
