Do you have professional knowledge, resources and skills that you want to share with current students or fellow alumni? See below for more info and to fill out our volunteer sign-up form.
UVA Engineering is a partner in the Virginia Alumni Mentoring program, which connects motivated and career-focused students with alumni who can provide insights about the process of choosing and starting a career in their specific field. Sign up for a semester long mentoring match with one student or a one-time flash mentoring session.
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.
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.
Help us bring a taste of UVA Engineering to your local area by hosting or sponsoring a faculty/alumni networking event in your city.
UVA Clubs are regional networks located in 100+ hub cities around the world made up of alumni, parents and friends interested in connecting with each other, their community and the University of Virginia. Join a committee, organize an event or simply help promote to Engineering alumni friends.
