About the Event

For the second year in a row, we are fortunate to have Vice-President of Amazon and UW EE Affiliate Professor Babak Parviz host the Department of Electrical Engineering alumni mixer at Amazon’s campus. The evening is an opportunity for guests to network with each other and meet current UW EE leadership and faculty while hearing about today’s research. Due to the overwhelming response last year, please note space is limited and registration will close when capacity has been reached. We encourage you to RSVP early.
