We maintain strong links with business and industry through our Civil and Environmental Engineering Advisory Board.
Industrial Advisory Board
A Civil Engineering Industrial Advisory Board has been in place at Surrey for the past 35 years. At present the Civil Engineering Advisory Board is chaired by Jim Hutchins who has been associated with many key developments at Surrey in the past fifteen or so years. Jim, a Director of WSP, brought his company into the scholarship scheme providing additional industrial placements for our students. As chairman of the Civil Engineering Advisory Board Jim has insisted it runs on boardroom practice and that the committee members are active and bring a variety of skills and backgrounds to the table. The committee meets three times a year and has a developing agenda. At appropriate times the board focusses on issues in line with JBM priorities of Health and Safety, Sustainability, and Design teaching. Additionally the Board will advise on programme developments, research and new approaches to teaching taking advantage of industry connections.
The Department team that are at a meeting are the Head of Department, The Research leads for the Geomechanics Group, the Infrastructure Systems Engineering Group, the Water and Environmental Health Group and the Global Centre for Air Research, the Director of Learning and Teaching, the Surrey/ICE Scholarship Coordinator and any relevant member of staff that has a particular input to a meeting’s agenda.
