Industry Advisory Board

Our Industry Advisory Board consults with industry representatives on issues of skills, research and strategy.  The Board meets three times a year and includes representation from global technology companies, financial service organisations, public sector, and innovative SMEs.  

We also host a less formal and virtual Industry Forum which companies, staff, and graduates.  The forum lets us keep in touch with stakeholders and friends to the School.  Please apply to join the Industry Forum and follow us on LinkedIn.  New members who have connections with the School are welcomed from around the world.
