OIT Times: Industrial Assessment Center (IAC)
March 21, 2000
To help maintain the high quality of the Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) program, a Critical Review Board has recommended that all IAC host universities be re-competed. A solicitation announcing the competition for participation in the IAC program was mailed to all eligible universities in March. Proposals must be received at the University City Science Center by May 5, 2000. All ABET-accredited university engineering schools will be eligible.... At the request of OIT Glass Team, IAC representatives conducted an integrated assessment at a large Owens-Corning facility. The assessment reflects OIT increasing effort to provide a seamless, comprehensive package of services to our industry customers. An IAC assessment team performed a similar service recently at a diecasting facility in cooperation with OIT Metalcasting Team.
