Industry Consultative Committees

The School of Computing and Engineering operates two industry consultative committees (ICCs) as links between the School and industry practitioners to: 

  1. Keep industrial partners informed about the structure and content of the courses
  2. Review feedback from external examiners and student surveys
  3. Inform partners of the department’s reporting within the University’s quality management system
  4. Discuss and receive feedback about current industry best practice
  5. Review the module course and module content and agree and take forward suggestions for future modifications
