The Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) of the Mechanical Engineering department is a valuable resource for the Whitacre College of Engineering, providing strategic planning, program development insights, and unique industry perspectives to the Department Chair. IAB Board members serve as ambassadors for the Mechanical Engineering department and are essential to forging alliances between students and Whitacre College of Engineering administration.
