Industry Advisory Councils

Department industry advisory councils (IACs) are comprised of industry managers and engineers, and meet with department faculty once or twice a year. A broad range of topics are discussed including curriculum development, laboratory development, faculty hiring, annual design reviews, research, proposals, grants, publications, national competitions, accreditation, internships, jobs, and more.

Participation by practicing engineers from industry and public agencies provides guidance to the college,and is similar in function to the Dean's Leadership Board.
