University-Industry Relations Roundtable

The purpose of the University-Industry Relations Roundtable (UIRR) is to foster communication between our university network and the steel industry. The committee's 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.
