Engineering Centers Building

Message from the 2001-2002 Industrial Advisory Board Chair

It has been another year of dramatic change on the College of Engineering campus. The physical transformation witnessed in the construction of the Engineering Centers Building offers only a hint of the change in research relationships and interaction that the building is designed to foster. It takes many years of dedication and focus to realize a plan like the Engineering Centers Building.

During 2001-2002, the Industrial Advisory Board has been focused on progress in meeting the key objectives of COE strategic plan.

Under the leadership of Dean Paul Peercy and with input from faculty, staff and the Industrial Advisory Board (IAB), the College of Engineering created this plan to guide the course of the college for the years 2000-2005.

Over the past year, IAB initiative teams provided issue and opportunity assessment and associated recommendations to Dean Peercy in the areas of diversity, technology transfer and publicity and communications. College faculty and staff continue to work hard at implementing appropriate changes in these areas.

The IAB also provided its perspectives to Dean Peercy on the potential impacts of the current state of Wisconsin budget issues, and on alternative COE responses to those issues. The college will seek near-term responses that not only meet the budget requirements but also maximize its ability to remain a top-flight engineering school in the longer term.

I thank my IAB colleagues, Dean Peercy and the COE administration and faculty for their dedication, involvement in and support of IAB activities. I'm sure these collective efforts will guide the college to still greater things to come.
