Influential advisors

Members of the Academy of Chemical Engineers and the Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Industry Advisory Council were instrumental supporters of Bertelsmeyer Hall, and helped see the project through to completion.

The academy was established in 1996 to honor Missouri S&T’s chemical engineering alumni for contributions to their profession, leadership and involvement with their alma mater. It serves as an advisory group to the department chair, faculty and students.

“The academy members have been a strong source of help to the department in recent years,” says Muthanna Al-Dahhan, chair and professor of chemical and biochemical engineering at Missouri S&T. “They played an important role in raising the funds needed for the new building.”

Established in 1991, the Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Industry Advisory Council also serves as an advisory group for the department. The group is made up of representatives from industries that hire chemical engineers, including chemical, oil, consumer products, biotechnology, renewable energy products, aerospace, engineering, construction management and consulting, and higher education.

“The Industry Advisory Council helps the department with ABET accreditation, including any needed assessments and evaluation plans,” says Al-Dahhan. “Its members review curriculum development and continuous improvement and they give their feedback. They also help the department reach out to industry to raise the needed funds for collaboration.”
