University-Industry Relations Roundtable

The purpose of the University and Industry Relations Roundtable (UIRR) is to foster communication between our university network and the steel industry. The committee objective is to increase the number of professors teaching a steel-related curriculum, and to increase the number of students interested in a career in the steel industry.
