History of the IME Department Industrial Advisory Council

The IME Department Industrial Advisory Council (DIAC) was started in 1983 by Dr. Andy Bazar, IME Department Chair, and was the first advisory board in the College of Engineering. Since then it has served as a model for other departments. The DIAC has been instrumental in providing significant advice, direction, jobs, equipment, and cash donations to the IME Department and students. Without this support the IME Department programs would suffer considerably. With their support we have been able to maintain our labs and upgrade equipment more frequently.
