National Visiting Committee
The NCAT National Visiting Committee is comprised of representatives from National Centers, ATE projects and other educational programs related to autonomous technologies. Members also include internationally, recognized certification organizations, national and global business leaders, respected consultants and innovators across the air, land and sea domains of autonomous technologies.
NSF National Visiting Committees (NVC) are an NSF resource and advocate for transformational concepts in technician education. The NCAT NVC has a critical role in helping assure the highest-quality outcomes in all aspects of the NCAT center hosted at Northland Community and Technical College. The NCAT NVC services three primary functions:
- Providing advice to the Principal Investigator and NCAT Center staff based on collective expertise and perspectives through helpful feedback, advice and guidance to assist in broadening the perception of current trends in the AT field and recommending effective ways of disseminating NCAT center results.
- Assessing the center’s progress through an objective lens to help focus on issues important to NSF and to the NCAT team, progress and plans, and developing recommendations which can help maximize their impact.
- Advocating for the project, including helping disseminate the project’s achievements.
