Alumni will speak with engineering students to share their professional insights and experiences. Current students can practice their networking skills while discovering more about the professional engineering world, how alumni are using their degrees and discovering new and exciting career paths. 

Alumni will have the opportunity to:

  • Mentor students pursuing a degree in engineering
  • Share experiences as a professional engineer
  • Answer students' questions about engineering fields and professional careers

Each year, we seek 40+ engineering alumni from all disciplines. If you are interested in participating, contact Michelle Reichelt,
