The centre is managed by a board of employers who ensure that the curriculum is relevant and that it prepares students appropriately for the world of work. The Industrial Centre of Excellence aims to make all project work industry based and as real as possible by working closely with the board. In addition all students attending the ICE are offered work placement opportunities with local employers.

The ICE board is currently made up of the following employers:
