EECS Industrial Advisory Board

The EECS Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) is established to help the department fulfill its mission of educating leaders, creating knowledge, and serving society, by

  • strengthening the ties between EECS and its constituents in industry, academia, and government;
  • the pursuit of new broad research agendas (e.g. through the creation of research centers and strategies for faculty recruitment);
  • fostering entrepreneurship by facilitating connections between Berkeley researchers, venture capitalists, and other industry visionaries;
  • the establishment of sustainable funding models to provide resources competitive with our peer institutions;
  • the establishment of targeted fellowships, endowed chairs, and other forms of support to help attract the very best students and faculty; and
  • development of educational initiatives, including possibly globalization, on-line learning, executive education, professional degrees, and industrial course modules.
