  • Give a Guest Lecture

    Share your knowledge with a specific class, department or student group. The format is up to you – formal presentation or informal ‘coffee chat’, but the goal is clear – share your knowledge, expertise, do’s and don’ts with current students on a topic area that aligns with your expertise.

  • Judge a Competition or Mentor a Team

    UVA Engineering students frequently compete at local, regional and national competitions – from the Baja Racing Club to Hoos Flying to the ACC Inventure Prize and more – these students rely on the expertise of Faculty and those in industry to help them perfect their presentation or product.

  • Host a Career Panel

    Join fellow alumni, parents and friends across academia and industry to discuss a certain topic area. Recent panels have focused on unique career paths, building a career in non-profit and career options with a Ph.D., but topic options are endless.

  • Become a Brand Ambassador

    Help UVA Engineering expand our brand by sharing stories on our FACEBOOKTWITTERLINKEDIN, and INSTAGRAM social pages - and via email, inviting friends to events, subscribing to e-news, sharing brochures and more.
