2022 Academic Advisory Committee Meeting and Senior Design Project Presentations
Thursday, May 19, 2022
The Paper Science & Chemical Engineering Academic Advisory Committee (AAC) Meeting is an annual event held each spring.
Each year, representatives from the
paper and allied industries gather with the Paper Science & Chemical Engineering faculty and staff to listen and assess the Senior Design
Project Presentations and provide students with constructive feedback on
their projects. After the presentations the committee meeting begins
with an update from Karyn Biasca, Department Chair, on the status of the
Department where industry representatives' input is encouraged.
If you would like to be a part of the Academic Advisory Board meeting and/or be a part of the Senior Design Projects, please contact the Paper Science & Chemical Engineering Department and we will be sure to email you with further details on how to join this event. We are planning an in person event this year with an option of virtual as needed.
