The College of Engineering sponsors the IPAC program, and the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering participates and has its own IPAC team. The ABE IPAC team includes members employed in natural resource engineering, biological and food process engineering, machinery companies, universities, structural design firms, general engineering companies, private consultants, etc.
IPAC members are selected by the faculty and department head in ABE, and serve a three-year term, which can be renewed one time.
The College of Engineering's annual meeting of The Industrial and Professional Advisory Committees (IPAC) was held March 23-24, 2016. The ABE IPAC team met with faculty, staff, and students from the ABE department to provide feedback and recommendations on department progress. The committee's next meeting will be in March 2017. We greatly appreciate the time and energy put forth by our team.
