Dean's advisory council

The Dean's Advisory Council exists to provide advice to the Dean of Applied Science on matters relating to the Faculty’s activities in engineering, including its academic programs, teaching, research and professional service.

The council’s advice — which stems from the collective experience of distinguished representatives from the engineering profession, industry and governments — is aimed at helping our Faculty remain responsive to cultural, economic and technological changes taking place in society and the marketplace.
