Engineering student advisory Council

All majors

Created by Provost Angela Lindner during her term as Associate Dean, ESAC consists of 22 members representing 12 different engineering disciplines in the HWCOE. The purpose of the Engineering Student Advisory Council is to represent the interests and issues of the undergraduate student population in the College of Engineering. The organization will consist of a committee of representatives from departments, minority groups, and student groups within the College of Engineering who meet with the Deans of the College of Engineering monthly to discuss pertinent concerns and issues within the College of Engineering from a student’s perspective. The organization may accomplish this goal by hosting State of the College Addresses, conducting the annual Engineering Student Survey, and hosting Engineering Day. Financial support for these projects and activities will come from corporate sponsors and the College of Engineering.
