External Advisory Committee

The University of Texas Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering External Advisory Committee (EAC) is comprised of leaders in academia and industry who support excellence in engineering education. The committee meets twice a year to provide counsel and help the department achieve its strategic goals. 

Committee members assist in promoting academic excellence, recruiting quality students, fostering professional and peer recognition of faculty, and interacting with the student-faculty-administrative-alumni community.

Specifically, the objectives of the External Advisory Committees are to advise the department of the professional requirements of private enterprise, providing a forum in which teaching, research, professional development, and academic excellence can be discussed. They also assist in developing effective programs for recruiting outstanding undergraduate and graduate students, and they further aid the department in approved fund-raising programs.
