Alumni

Graduation doesn’t end your relationship with the School of Computing and Engineering. We encourage alumni to return regularly, be it for career advice or to help the next generation of engineers and computer scientists. Alumni serve as campus volunteers, mentors, lecturers and scholarship donors. Their help is vital to our robust scholarship program, state-of-the-art facilities, faculty and community outreach programs.

Thousands of SCE alumni are making a real difference around the world, discovering solutions to improve our communities. Learn how you can help SCE foster business relationships and be part of a larger network of engineers and computer scientists.
