Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) Third Meeting

The Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) meeting of Department of Electrical Engineering (DEE), LCWU was held on 17th August 2022. Industrial advisors were present, it was a lively and interactive session, various representatives of the industry offered valuable advice and insight on how to improve the structure of internships, refine the curriculum to make it in sync with the latest industry trends, updating of PEOs and KPIs, and enhance research and industrial cooperation so the synergy between the industry and the academia increases. Discussions were also held on how to synchronies student Final Year Projects with their internships so both the students and the industry can benefit from the projects sponsored by the industry.

Another thoughtful suggestion was to incorporate the subject of HVDC Engineering in DEE Elective Courses. It is suggested to enhance collaboration with other labs (e.g Rabat High voltage lab) to perform testing on the projects.
A very insightful idea given was that faculty should also do internships with the industry to enhance their own linkages with the industry and get up to date with the latest industry trends.
