Industrial Advisory Council

Established in 1991, the Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Advisory Council’s goal is to provide perspective to Missouri S&T's Chemical and Biochemical Engineering department from stakeholders who employ S&T graduates. Past and current members of the council attended Missouri S&T dating all the way back to the 60s, and represent a wide diversity of industries including oil, chemicals, consumer products, biotechnology, renewable energy and products, aerospace, engineering and construction, management consulting, and higher education. The council strives to provide the department and university with the benefit of the collective experience of its members and wisdom gained in their professional careers to build closer alliances with industry and influence the image and support of the department. The council has a collection of bylaws.
