The UH chapter of Tau Beta Pi – Texas Epsilon (TBP) is hosting an information session with representatives of INEOS, the fourth largest global chemicals company, on Wednesday, February 27, in the Science and Research Building 1 on campus. The presenters will be Bob Sokol, chief financial officer of INEOS Oligomers and Oxide, and Fred Rulander, chief operating officer of INEOS Oxide North America.

INEOS is a major supplier of basic chemical components found in a range of everyday products. It has a production network of 171 sites in 24 countries and employs about 19,000 people.

“This is an opportunity for attendees to learn what the industry wants from its engineers,” said Pietro Antonio Cicalese, a master’s student in biomedical engineering at the Cullen College of Engineering and spokesman for TBP.

“It is very rare to have company officers present for student organization events, so we believe that it is of special importance to our role as an honors society at UH,” he added.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to submit their resumes that will be forwarded to the company representatives for consideration for existing and future job or internship opportunities. Refreshments will be provided.

The event is exclusive to TBP members and candidates.  “We hope that once students learn of the event, they will be more interested in applying to join TBP, the oldest engineering honors society in the United States,” Cicalese said, adding that members also get access to the many resources TBP has to offer.
