Brown University School of Engineering

Corporate Affiliates Board

The School of Engineering CAB has been developed to ensure that the growth and evolution of the School accords with industry needs, and that the School will be guided and supported by robust industry involvement.

A main purpose of the CAB is to mutually benefit industry partners and the School. This is accomplished by developing relationships that enhance both student internship and employment opportunities, and explore ways for faculty to partner with industry in performing high-impact research. The CAB will provide the Dean with guidance on the School’s educational program – its quality and relevance to state-of-the-art engineering challenges, together with the preparedness of its graduates.
