2 Lake Superior State University Department of Engineering & Technology AGENDAAGENDA

3 Lake Superior State University Department of Engineering & Technology ACTION ITEMS Minutes – Spring 2008 Meeting

4 Lake Superior State University Department of Engineering & Technology CHAIR’S REPORT State of the industry –Credit is Tight –Schedules are being revised, 09 is going to be a challenge –Commodity pricing is falling Prime time to have Industry Partnership with Education Good time to be in school Need Institutions to assist Industry to weather the storm –Cheaper Labor –Innovated Ideas

5 Lake Superior State University Department of Engineering & Technology 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”.

6 Lake Superior State University Department of Engineering & Technology CHAIR’S REPORT IAB members are expected to: Evaluate and critique engineering programs by providing professional experience and direction. Be able to provide technical support such as, teaching materials, information on equipment, donate equipment, funding. Promote LSSU engineering curriculum to young people by participating in regional recruitment seminars and invite students for industrial tours. Attend IAB meetings. Support the senior project program with ideas or equipment and/or materials. Encourage professional development of the faculty by providing summer employment and sponsoring sabbaticals. Provide assistance with job placement for students both full-time and summer internships. Participate on subcommittees. Vote during IAB meetings on issues relative to the Role Statement.

11 COMMITTEE REPORTS

12 Recruitment Subcommittee: Recruitment Support for Fall 2008 MACRAO Events Chris Conklin

13 Lake Superior State University Department of Engineering & Technology IAB MACRAO Participation 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.

14 Lake Superior State University Department of Engineering & Technology Thoughts/Sharing 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.

15 Lake Superior State University Department of Engineering & Technology Thoughts/Sharing 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.

16 Lake Superior State University Department of Engineering & Technology Thoughts/Sharing 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.

17 Lake Superior State University Department of Engineering & Technology Thoughts/Sharing 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. 11/3/200817LSSU IAB Meeting

18 Lake Superior State University Department of Engineering & Technology …in closing 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 soliciting your support.

19 Lake Superior State University Department of Engineering & Technology THANK YOU 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.
