Project Advisory Committee

An Advisory Committee comprised of industry and higher educational professionals provided insights to the EMERGE Program on economic trends and on current and future community needs in the fields of sustainability and renewable energy.

Faculty and project staff synthesized that collective expertise to develop and further refine the program’s project-based curriculum to serve the training needs of our future Central Florida workforce.
