Advisory Board

Since its inception in 2004, the ODU Engineering Advisory Board has striven to build the best advisory team possible in effort to keep the College at its very finest. With that objective in mind, the membership has consistently included those individuals representing a constituent group for the College, whether that be alumni, employers or public or private entities. Despite its seemingly broad stroke, all of the described constituents have one thing in common: vested interest in the success of ODU Engineering. Through their expertise, experience and benevolence, these advocates aid the College in maintaining its superlative version.
