TIJT Industry Advisory Board

Published or Revised January 15, 2016

The Texas Institute of Jewelry Technology relies on advice from individuals working in occupations directly related to each program area to assist us in determining current and future needs. Advisory committees are vital to the establishment and operation of up-to-date programs.
