Each Industrial Program Director (PD) maintains a portfolio of company relationships for which he/she is responsible. Generally these company portfolios are geographically diverse and focused along industry/ technology lines. PDs are responsible for understanding their companies’ interests and developing activities that link those companies with the faculty most relevant.
Each PD also serves as a liaison between the OCR and one or more Schools or Departments of the Institute. Working with the Deans, PDs provide support for development projects that are School priorities (see schedule below).
