Industry Advisory Board
Graeme Sammells

The primary role for the Industry Advisory Board is to act as an industry partner to the University and provide suggestions and feedback to ensure the curriculum evolves to remain highly relevant. Industry wants motivated graduates with relevant skills and a great attitude.

The members of the Industry Advisory Board represent a broad cross section of private and public enterprise from many industries. Members take an active interest in the development of education programs and many are involved in graduate recruitment initiatives.

The Industry Advisory Board meets with Faculty staff at least four times a year, and provides active input to update existing curriculum and develop new initiatives. The Faculty staff also benefit from having regular discussion with industry leaders about the skills, knowledge, attributes and attitudes sought by employers.
