Advisory Board

Our Advisory Board is comprised of many of the luminaries in the Datacenter industry. As thought leaders and visionaries, these board members advise the MSDSE Program to not only adapt to the current conditions of the Datacenter industry, but also help to see around corners for where the industry is headed next. By providing input around curriculum, creating connections to industry for internships and hiring, speaking to students through guest lectures and in-class sessions, creating opportunities for cutting edge research in the space, the Advisory Board continues to invest its charter to give back to the industry that provided so much for them as individuals.
