From attending alumni events to mentoring student capstone projects, it’s easy to get involved in UW ECE. It is thanks to increased alumni involvement, collaboration and support that UW ECE is a place of excellence.
Attend UW ECE Alumni Events
Throughout the year, we host various events for our alums to come together, speak to new and established faculty and discuss groundbreaking research in the field. There are multiple opportunities to connect, including alumni mixers in the Seattle area to an annual event in the Bay Area. If you aren’t on the events email list, we’d be happy to add you. Please fill out the alumni contact form.
Join Us for a Lecture Series
- Dean Lytle Lecture Series
Gain exclusive access to our premiere lecture series. The Dean W. Lytle Lecture allows alumni to return to campus, connect with faculty and listen to groundbreaking research from a leader in the field of electrical engineering.
- Colloquium Lecture Series
Did you know that you can access our Colloquiums from wherever you are? Researchers and experts travel to the UW to join our faculty in discussing current issues in electrical engineering. Alumni are encouraged to engage with researchers. However, even if you cannot make it, live streaming is available.
