Industrial and Professional Advising Council
The Industrial and Professional Advisory Council (IPAC) is a select group of alumni from industry, government agencies, and academia who advise the department on academic issues and on current trends and future directions in engineering. The council meets regularly with EECS faculty and students to receive an update on the department, undergraduate and graduate programs and research activities.
If you are interested in finding out how your company can strategically partner with the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, please contact our director, Thomas La Porta at email@example.com.
