Get Involved

From attending alumni events to mentoring student capstone projects, it’s easy to get involved in UW EE. It is thanks to increased alumni involvement, collaboration and support that UW EE is a place of excellence.

Attend UW EE 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. View photos from the Puget Sound Alumni Mixer and Bay Area Alumni Event. If you aren’t on the events email list, we’d be happy to add you. Please fill out the alumni contact form.
