Getting Involved with SoE

Donating your time as a SoE volunteer is an important way that you can give back.  Your knowledge, experience and expertise are valuable assets and resources for current engineering students.  We encourage all Guelph Engineering Alumni to get involved. 

The School of Engineering is currently recruiting Design Day Judges for Thursday April 4th, 2024, in the Thornbrough Building.  Judges are required to work within the engineering field or related profession, with a minimum 5 years experience.  P.Eng or EIT preferred but not necessary.  Parking and refreshments provided.

UPDATE: Please note that as of March 15th, we have reached our capacity for alumni judges at Design Day this semester. Thank you for your continued interest in participating in Design Day.

41X Judges - 12:00pm  |   3100 Judges - 4:00pm   |   2100 Judges - 9:00am 

Here are a few ways to get invovled:

  1. Help increase engineering alumni engagement by joining the Engineering Alumni Association (EAA).  As a member of the EAA, you will:  network with fellow engineering professionals, connect with Guelph engineering students, advance the priorities of the SoE and be exposed to career development opportunities.  Come to an EAA meeting today ( )!
  2. Join the new Ten Thousand Coffees Engineering Cafe- an online mentorship program. This program connects you Engineering students or recent grads to share career advice, provide industry insights and help prepare them for their next big step.
  3. Want to talk to students about your career path and what it’s like working as a professional engineer (P.Eng) or an engineer-in-training (EIT)?  Join us at the annual School of Engineering Career Night.  Alumni from all graduation years and disciplines are welcomed!  Occurs every year in late-January.
  4.  Design Day Judges. Get involved as a 4th-year design (41X) project judge or a  judge for 2nd- and 3rd-year design (2100 and 3100, respectively) projects.  Occurs every year in early-April.
