The newly established Statewide Engineering Technology Industry Advisory Board (SETIAB) was created to engage manufacturers with college Engineering Technology programs and endorse the required skills. The Board seeks to increase the visibility of program completers, suggests the curriculum content of the Associate in Science in Engineering Technology Program, and ensure that the State’s 20-plus ET programs continue to meet the rapidly evolving needs of the industry.
