Electrical engineers hold about 319,100 jobs, making this the second largest branch of the U.S. engineering community (behind software engineering). Most electrical engineers are employed by manufacturers of electrical/electronic components and computer/office equ ipment, industrial machinery, and professional, medical and scientific instruments. California, Texas, Maryland, New York, Georgia and New Jersey employ nearly 40% of all electrical engineers nationwide. Mechanical Engineer Salary Mechanical engineers hold about 251,900 jobs. More than 2 out of 5 are in manufacturing, primarily in machinery, transportation equipment, electrical equipment, instruments and fabricated metal products industries. 2011 Engineering Salary Outlook Electrical Engineer Salaries

Electrical engineer salary range for the middle 50% is between $62,420 and $104,180. Median annual electrical engineer salary in the industries employing the largest numbers are: Computer and office equipment: $73,790 Measuring and control devices: $76,910 Search and navigation equipment: $78,140 Electronic peripherals, components and accessories: $76,820 Engineering service firms: $71,650 Federal Government $74,850 RF Engineering: $87,230 Advanced electrical engineering degrees are in high demand by both Fortune 500s and start-ups. The highest electrical engineer salaries for experienced engineers are concentrated on the east and west coasts, and average nearly 7% higher than the rest of the United States.

Electrical Engineering Employment Outlook Electrical engineer job opportunities should be favorable into 2015. The number of electrical engineer job openings resulting from employment growth, and the need to replace electrical engineers who transfer to other occupations, are promoted, or leave the labor force is expected to be in rough balance - because of the sharply reduced supply of recent electrical engineering new graduates (which has declined annually since 2003). 2011 Engineering Salary Outlook Mechanical Engineer Salaries Mechanical engineer salary range for the middle 50% is between $55,680 and $89,910. Median annual mechanical engineer salary in the industries employing the largest numbers are: Federal government: $68,770

Engineering and architectural services: $69,150 Motor vehicles and equipment: $72,190 Construction and related machinery: $67,380 Manufacturing: $71,930 Mechanical Engineering Employment Outlook Mechanical engineer employment is projected to grow about as fast as the average for all non-engineering occupations though 2015. Employment of mechanical engineers in manufacturing should increase more rapidly as the demand for improved machinery and machine tools grows and industrial machinery and processes become increasingly complex. Also, emerging technologies in IT, biotechnology, and nanotechnology will continue to create new mechanical engineer job opportunities. Employment in mechanical engineering for business and engineering services firms is expected to grow slightly faster than average - as companies increasingly

outsource mechanical engineering functions. In addition to job openings from growth, many mechanical engineer openings should result from the need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations or leave the labor force. Secretarys Report Nathan Callaghan Review minutes and action items from November 2010 meeting Chairmans Report Fred Berg

IAB Role Statement Review Need the membership to either approve existing version of Role Statement or update it. IAB Role Statement Review: The Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) is comprised of professional men and women in engineering positions who actively participate in the development of and the promotion of Lake Superior State University engineering and engineer technology programs, faculty members and students.

Committee Reports Recruiting / MACRAO Events Chris Conklin

IAB Admissions Support LSSU Admissions and the IAB continue to work very well together. Participation in and support for the 2011 Spring MACRAO events and Admitted Students Receptions across the state. IAB MACRAO Participants Spring 2011 Diane Haig: 03/07/11: Marion HS Bob Andersen: 03/15/11: Romeo Engineering and Technology Center Brian Theriault: 03/16/11: Gaylord HS

Ralph Larsen: 03/17/11: Charlevoix HS Chris Conklin: 04/15/11: Mid Michigan Community College IAB Admitted Students Reception Participants Spring 2011 Chris Conklin: 02/28/11: Midland Lynnette Eding: 03/03/11: Grand Rapids Both receptions were very well attended by admitted students and parents. Highlights

MACRAO events continue to be well organized and many students are now being bussed to these events by their schools. MACRAO events remain regionally focused. Highlight Sheets are a popular handout. Summer Camps are a high interest area. March 2011 MACRAO events attended had strong engineering and technology interests. Lowlights Laptop less of a tool, no interest. Little to no interest in the Recruiting/Press Kit. Fewer potential Engineering and Technology students at MACRAO events. LSSU is still a major unknown in the field of engineering

and technology. April 2011 MACRAO event attended had no engineering or technology queries or interest. Thoughts/Sharing Loss of interest in the Recruiting/Press Kit this year. Need a different format or different approach? Loss of interest in laptop PC presentations. Need a different format or different approach? in closing We all enjoy supporting these events, it is a rewarding experience to be able to provide information that may be used in a students decision

making process for their educational and career choices. The Fall 2011 MACRAO events are not yet scheduled. During the summer as this calendar is firmed up and posted, I will again send an email soliciting your support. THANK YOU A special THANK YOU to all of the IAB membership who supported the Spring 2011 MACRAO events and Admitted Student Receptions. Your support is greatly appreciated and I hope that we can continue to support future events. IAB participation in MACRAO events and Admitted Student Receptions is a very UNIQUE and POSITIVE

INFLUENCE on student choice.

Wow!

School of Engineering & Technology Mechanical Engineering/ Manufacturing Engineering Technology Only minor ME curriculum changes (prerequisites, etc.) Only small lab equipment acquisitions (e.g., camera integral to microscope) Started ME curriculum comparison (Note David Bs data). (benchmarking other Schools) -- updates at fall meeting Contemplating a Thermodynamics/Fluid Lab course (1 credit) School of Engineering & Technology

ABET visit for MfgET program Will definitely reaccredit no interim visit likely No major findings (weaknesses or deficiencies) only a few lower-level findings (concerns): some older equipment & texts, continuous improvement practices (not convincingly demonstrated)

BUT! Post inspection, one concern became a weakness! We have vigorously contested this. Survey Please help us comply with our ABET criteria and complete an Evaluation of Educational Preparation of Employees survey. We are collecting materials during the 2011-12 academic year for the CE, EE and ME programs. EAC of ABET will visit during Fall 2012. Thank you! The Survey can be found on the IAB web page under resources.
