Chemical Engineering External Advisory Board

Mission

The mission of the Department of Chemical Engineering's External Advisory Board (EAB) is to provide feedback and support for departmental education and research goals. The EAB serves a key role in our undergraduate degree accreditation process, vetting program assessment and changes related to continuous improvement and serving as a resource for industry needs with respect to program graduates. The EAB also provides input on the graduate program and research, bringing perspectives from other academic departments and government laboratories. The EAB is working to strengthen alumni engagement, department development, and career outreach to high school students through three subcommittees composed of EAB members, young alumni, department faculty, college staff, and current students.
