Industrial Advisory Boards
The Australian University (AU) formed the Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) as an integral component of AU’s management structure. This Board provides a link between key stakeholders in the industry and the University. The University’s dynamic and active IABs are comprised of senior and executive leaders from a wide spectrum of industries in the public and private sectors. IABs members provide high level strategic advice on areas of curriculum development and support in the provision of research-informed and practice-based education. This is key as it allows the University to design its courses from an industrial perspective to ensure its graduates are in-demand and employable. AU’s IABs act as a reference point in research and outreach agendas and assist the University in accessing a pool of experts in the industry. They also lend their knowledge and expertise to support AU in realizing its mission and vision.
