Helping us stay on track
Swenson College benefits from an External Advisory Board which reviews the overall content of our programs to make sure we are compatible with the current and potential needs and practices of industry and other employers. The board also makes suggestions and supports the implementation of curricular or structural changes, if such needs are identified.
This External Advisory Board leads us in discussions of real-world scientific and engineering issues, as well as economic and political realities. The board’s advice is extremely important as we strive to properly prepare our students for the workforce or continue their professional education.
