Advisory Council

The Advisory Council (AC) facilitates the consultation with the external constituencies when reviewing and updating the Program Educational Objectives, as well as the curriculum and Student Outcomes, and to some extent the overall plans, for the continued relevance of the ChE Program.

The AC consists of alumni, major employers, representatives from the chemical engineering professional organization and representatives from other higher educational institutions offering the same Program. The council members help the Department in identifying the expected academic capability and skills necessary to be possessed by Chemical Engineers in the actual practice of the profession and provide recommendation on possible courses to be embedded in the curriculum in various areas of specialization.

Likewise, they participate in the review and realignment of the Program Educational Objectives (PEO) of the Chemical Engineering Program to respond to the demands of the industry, both local and global.
