Industry and Professional Advisory Council

The Industrial and Professional Advisory Council (IPAC) is a select group of representatives from industry, government agencies, academia, and the profession who advise the department on academic issues, current industry trends, and emerging opportunities in industrial and systems engineering. IPAC is a forum where ideas are exchanged and recommendations are made. IPAC provides direct linkage and communication between the college and the engineering profession.

The functions of IPAC are to:

  • act as an advisory group on specific academic and research issues;
  • serve as a link between the department and its industrial and professional partners, providing an opportunity for communication of current and future industry and professional needs to the department;
  • identify steps that the department should take to meet special needs; and
  • provide recommendations on initiatives that the department should explore to improve educational and research programs to meet the needs of the world and the profession.
