Civil Engineering Professional Advisory Council (CEPAC)

The Civil Engineering Professional Advisory Council (CEPAC) was established at UIC in 2000, and consists of civil engineering faculty members and professional practitioners. The formation of the Council was prompted by the American Board of Engineering Accreditors (ABET). The purpose of (CEPAC) is to enhance undergraduate education at UIC. Similar organizations exist in other engineering departments and at other schools.
