Advisory Committees

Advisory Committees

Committee membership consists of representatives from industry, governmental agencies, and academia.  The three major industry-based programs, Forest Technology, Land Surveying Technology and Natural Resource Management have advisory committees.  Several of the committee members employ our students for their summer work experience.  Members are invaluable for their advice on improvement of the subject materials, skill sets, and industry contacts.  Their assessment of the graduates and the program has strengthened the curriculum.
