Advisory Board

The annual meeting of the Advisory Board is held on the Georgia Tech campus each fall. The Advisory Board recommends directions to the Nuclear and Radiological Engineering Programs, suggests broad-based curriculum revisions, and consults with the Chair and faculty on important issues. Members are invited to join the Advisory Board so that its composition reflects the varied scope of nuclear and radiological engineering industries, and the academic community.
