CHAIR’S REPORT

IAB Role Statement:

  • The Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) is comprised of professional men and women in engineering positions who actively participate in the development of and the promotion of Lake Superior State University engineering and engineer technology programs, faculty members and students.
  • IAB members guide, nurture and assure that the School of Engineering and Mathematics produces engineers with skills that will not only fulfill today’s industrial needs, but will foresee the requirements of tomorrow in a global economy. IAB members provide “real time” interface with both faculty members and students bringing today’s industrial technology to LSSU “today”.

iab macrao participation
IAB MACRAO Participation

Lake Superior State University

Department of Engineering & Technology

We participated again this year in the 2008 Fall MACRAO events.

MACRAO calendar was updated in mid-summer.

LSSU Admissions office continues to work with the IAB.

LSSU Admissions counselors are very appreciative of our participation.

Thoughts/Sharing

Lake Superior State University

Department of Engineering & Technology

MACRAO events are well organized and the students and parents look forward to attending these events to help in deciding career and education choices.

MACRAO events were focused more regionally this year. In the central Michigan area all of our events were concentrated into the same week, this kept us busy.

thoughts sharing15
Thoughts/Sharing

Lake Superior State University

Department of Engineering & Technology

The events are held in high schools and universities. The space/area utilized varies significantly from event to event. The events are held in gymnasiums, hallways, cafeterias, or a commons. Some of these areas have low ceilings, hard surfaces, and are cramped. Other areas are large open areas and are able to better handle the crowds that attend these events.

thoughts sharing16
Thoughts/Sharing

Lake Superior State University

Department of Engineering & Technology

Table top space is too limited for the amount of recruiting materials utilized. Typical table top is 60”x 30”.

Some of the events were poorly attended this season with little or no inquiries from the attendees.

Recruiting brochures had not been received by the admissions counselors prior to the events.

Significant interest in Nursing and Health Care related fields.

Lower interest in Engineering, possible lack of awareness or other?

None of the admissions counselors had any of the recruitment CD’s from the Engineering and Technology department.

We all enjoy supporting these events, it is a rewarding experience to be able to provide information that may be used in a student’s decision making process for their educational and career choices.

The Spring 2009 MACRAO events are coming up after the beginning of the new year. I will again post an email soliciting your support.

thank you
THANK YOU

Lake Superior State University

Department of Engineering & Technology

A special THANK YOU to all of the IAB membership that supported the Fall 2008 MACRAO events. Your support is greatly appreciated and I hope that we can have more of the membership participate in future events.

You can make a difference in the lives of these young people as they make their education and career choices.
