Ways to Get Involved

Professionalism Committee

CPNC networking

Many alumni participate in the Career Perspectives and Networking Conference.

The UB Engineering and Applied Sciences Alumni Association has partnered with the SEAS 360° Certificate of Professional Development program. This cost free program is designed to help undergraduate and graduate students develop and improve “soft skills,” which are in high demand for employers around the world. 

Alumni are an integral part of the program, contributing to its relevancy and significance by:

  • Speaking in classes (panels, Q&As, presentations)
  • Participating in the Career Perspectives and Networking Conference (resume review, mock interviews, networking practice)
  • Participating in the Career Connector Network (resume review, mock interviews, one-on-one connections, share your experience or talk about the companies you’ve worked for from anywhere in the world)
Alumni Fireside Chat

Alumni and students enjoy a s'mores campfire night at Lake LaSalle.

Mentoring and Wellness Committee

With background support from campus student counseling services, this group of trusted alumni connect with students to address the “small fish in a big pond” syndrome.

Through coffee hours in the engineering quad, s’mores campfire nights at Baird Point, ice cream socials in the dorms, and other casual events, alumni connect with students on an “I’ve been there” level and let them know they’ll be okay — because you’re okay!

  3. Give to the UBEAA to support our student and alumni programs, scholarships, or student experiential learning opportunities
  4. Sponsor engineering club activities, including participation in competitions such as ASCE's Concrete Canoe and SAE’s Clean Snowmobile Challenge.
  5. Provide mentoring, internship opportunities, or submit a problem for an engineering project.
