About the Industry Advisory Board
The T&D Industry Advisory Board (T&D-IAB) is comprised of engineering leaders from industry, government agencies, and private consulting firms. Current membership represents power utilities (large and small), engineering consulting companies, research entities, and power-related manufacturers.
The T&D-IAB provides external counsel on the T&D program’s teaching and mission, and assists in promoting the program to potential students, employers, legislative leaders, government agencies and industry.
The T&D-IAB meets in formal session semiannually. Click here for the T&D IAB Charter.
