Department Industry Advisory Councils

Department 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, which is important for helping to achieve our mission of preparing students for industry and advanced studies.
