The Engineering Education Roundtable is the centerpiece of our efforts to develop an ongoing and disciplined approach to identifying and serving the education needs of Oregon engineers and their companies. EER surveys are managed by Conkling Fiskum & McCormick, Inc. to ensure our efforts are consistent with the best practices of market research.If you are a member of the EER, thank you for your participation. If you would like to join and help guide engineering education in Oregon, you may enroll by filling out the EER new member form at: http://www.oregonengineer.org/advisory_groups.htm
