Building Construction Science Advisory Board

Building Construction Science Advisory Board

The Building Construction Science Program continues to enjoy excellent support from dedicated construction professionals through their active and voluntary participation in the BCS Industry Advisory Board (IAB). Through its efforts, this board merges the needs and expectations of the construction industry with the academy to form a strong partnership that enhances the quality of the education needed to produce the construction professional of the 21st century. The board supports the BCS program through giving input into and influencing the direction of the program. It actively promotes the continual improvement of construction professional education and development of cutting-edge construction knowledge. The IAB provides liaisons between the construction industry and the BCS program by offering advice and counsel while contributing to the vision of the BCS program. The board meets a minimum of twice an academic year - once in the fall semester and once in the spring semester.
