We are blessed that Eastman Chemical leadership met with our faculty and dean to agree to join in an advisory and supportive role, by reviewing curriculum to help ensure we are preparing chemical engineers who are job-ready and will flourish in a manufacturing setting.
Our students will benefit from opportunities for internships and mentoring by Eastman employees who can share real-world experience and insights into a career in chemical engineering.
Some of Eastman's engineers may serve as guest lecturers in our classrooms, and our students will be able to tour Eastman and observe training in the areas of industrial safety.
Eastman Chemical has been a great friend of the university and this partnership will open new doors of cooperation.
Kudos to Dr. Larry Frazier for making this partnership a reality. Faculty and staff are invited to attend the announcement of this new partnership at 11:30 a.m. in the South Lobby of the Glaske Center tomorrow morning.
