Advisory Board

The Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Processes Institute's Board of Advisors includes industry leaders and nationally-recognized scholars. The institute works closely with its advisors for guidance in pursuit of market-centric research, national funding and industry partnership and funding opportunities. The board meets with the institute team annually, and spends time with individual institute members on key projects as determined. Board members serve three-year terms, and participate in future public forums.
