Industry Advisory Panel

Further Information

  • Boards and Committees

The Industry Advisory Panel advises the School on its teaching and research programs, particularly with regard to their relevance to local and international industry needs.

The panel intends to contribute to the formulation of the objectives of the School and to assist in their achievement. Our main role is to provide an external industry perspective on the functions and operations of the School, teaching and research centres with the aim of ensuring that they are:

  • of significance to the profession
  • consistent with and support industry and government objectives
  • in accordance with industry needs for engineering graduates
  • consistent with changes in technology and the use of technology in local industry
  • likely to benefit the State of Western Australia and the community at large
  • likely to promote research in areas that are critical to the profession, the development of Western Australia and the nation.

The panel may make recommendations concerning all matters of relevance to the School of Engineering and may make recommendations to the Faculty Advisory Board for the benefit of other advisory panels or for the submission to the Faculty Board (staff login required).

One external member of the advisory panel reports on the activities of the panel to each meeting of the Faculty Advisory Board. Meetings of the advisory panel are held at least every six months or are arranged to discuss particular initiatives at the convenience of the members.
