External Advisory Board
Engineering students are encouraged to connect with members of the Program’s Advisory Board. The purpose of the External Advisory Board (EAB) is to provide advice and support the success of Coastal Carolina University’s Engineering Science Program and its students through administration of the process for reviewing and revising the program educational objectives and to advise on strategic areas of curriculum development, research, raise discretionary or special purpose funds and outreach. One of the key responsibilities of the EAB to help the Program’s student body succeed. The board members should be passionate about helping the students become successful professionals. This is accomplished in the following ways:
- Open Door Policy Not as a formal program, but more of viewpoint, the Open-Door Policy indicates the board members' willingness to provide guidance and insight to Engineering Science students on an ad hoc basis through the students' initiative.
- One-on-One Mentoring Program This program is designed to provide undergraduate students with a mentor with professional experience who can help the student plan for their professional life while at Coastal Carolina University.
- Reservoir of Expertise The EAB may contribute expertise by collaborating with the program as consultants or speakers.
- Capstone Project Preparation and Presentation Assist in sourcing and providing real-world project ideas, collaborate with faculty and students on project completion and/or judge project presentations.
