The Industrial Advisory Council (IAC) serves an important role in the School of Aeronautics & Astronautics. The success of our programs depends on strong support from industry and the Industrial Advisory Council serves as a link between industry and the university. The IAC meet twice a year in the fall and spring and review a large variety of topics related to our current operations and future goals.
