The UH chapter of Tau Beta Pi – Texas Epsilon (TBP) hosted an information session with representatives of INEOS, a global manufacturer of petrochemicals, specialty chemicals and oil products this week. The INEOS presenters included Bob Sokol, chief financial officer of INEOS Oligomers and Oxide; Fred Rulander, chief operating officer of INEOS Oxide North America; Matt Abraham, university sponsor and business development director; and Joel Roberts, lead recruiter.

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.

The highlights of the presentation included the growth of the private company, hiring practices and professional growth opportunities within the company. “The INEOS engineers present described their ability to do anything they put their minds to in the company – from working in the plants to making important decisions in the financial sector,” said Pietro Antonio Cicalese, a master’s student in biomedical engineering at and spokesman for TBP.

Company representatives also accepted student resumes for consideration for existing and future job and internship opportunities.

“We saw their business philosophy as a parallel to what we want to do at TBP: bring engineers to the forefront of the modern world, not just as the mighty problem solvers that we are, but as the strong and ambitious leaders we are meant to be,” Cicalese said. “The company representatives explicitly expressed their interest in creating a program with TBP at UH.”

TBP, founded in 1885, is the oldest engineering honor society and second oldest collegiate honor society in America. It represents the entire engineering profession.
