Corporate Advisory Committee

The Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Computing prepares our students for successful careers in engineering and computing professional areas.  We have established a Corporate Advisory Committee (CAC) of executives in business, industry, military, and professional affiliations across the Southeast.

College leadership, faculty, and staff consult with CAC members on a range of issues from workforce development and industry trends to our curriculum revisions in our academic programs.

Learn more about our degrees & programs: undergraduate, graduate, certificate, and online.


CAC Mission

  1. Strategic: Inform the Dean from a professional perspective about trends and events affecting the profession and the College.
  2. Coalition Building:  Help the Dean develop relationships with regional corporations, educational and governmental institutions; act as ambassadors and advocates for Georgia Southern within professional networks.
  3. Educational:  Provide expertise and knowledge of what is required from entry-level employees in the engineering and computing fields.
  4. Fundraising:  Endowments, scholarships, research funds and in-kind donations are crucial to achieving a shared goal of providing a top-notch education for our graduates (and future employees).
