Industry Advisory Board Meetings

MEP holds IAB Meetings every Spring quarter and invite all board members to attend. Our goal is to share with our members what we have accomplished, and where we want to go the following year. With the input of our IAB, we work to shape our program to create students who will be ready for the workforce upon graduation.
