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. 

Here 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 (eaa@uoguelph.ca)!
  2. Got a real world engineering challenge that needs solving?  Come pitch it to 3rd-year design students.  Faculty members teaching the 3100 design course need your ideas!  Volunteer to speak to a class for 15 to 20 minutes and present them with an engineering problem to work on through the semester.  Students will work in groups, acting as engineering consultants, and present their solutions at the end of the course.  Occurs every year in mid-January.  
  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. Do you have a P.Eng?  Get involved as a 4th-year design (41X) project judge.  Don't have a P.Eng?  You can still be involved as a judge for 2nd- and 3rd-year design (2100 and 3100, respectively) projects.  Occurs every year in early-April.
