Industrial Advisory Council 2009-10

The Industrial Advisory Council (IAC) serves an important role in the School of Aeronautics and 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.
