Since the awarding of the first BSEE degree in 1984, our ECE alumni community has continued to grow with the addition of new degree programs, such as the BS in Computer Engineering, MS in Electrical Engineering, MS in Computer Engineering, MS in Advanced Materials, and PhD in Electrical Engineering. Together, we form a large and diverse family of ECE alumni.

Our ECE alumni have achieved extraordinary success as engineers, researchers, innovators, and entrepreneurs. Our graduates have made significant contributions to a wide range of industries, from advancing cutting-edge technologies to leading major corporations and government agencies. Moreover, since the graduation of the first three PhDEE alumni in 2006, many of our graduates have become esteemed professors at universities, continuing to shape the future of electrical and computer engineering through their research, teaching, and mentorship. The achievements of our ECE alumni are a testament to the exceptional education and training they received from our department. We take great pride in their successes and are committed to providing our current students with the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to follow in their footsteps.

Our ECE alumni have played an active role in supporting our department, generously giving back to their alma mater. Many of our alumni regularly speak to our students in introduction classes and seminars, sharing their stories and inspiring the next generation of ECE graduates. Additionally, they provide invaluable mentorship, internships, and job opportunities to our current students, helping to launch their careers in the field of electrical and computer engineering. Thanks to the unwavering support of our alumni, we have been able to establish numerous professorships and scholarships, providing critical resources and opportunities for our students and faculty. We are immensely grateful for the contributions of our alumni and are committed to continuing to work with them to further the success of our department and its graduates.

Your success is our success, and we look forward to celebrating your accomplishments and staying connected for years to come. (Please use the Google Form to get connected.) We welcome our alumni to attend ECE homecoming as a chance to reconnect with our alma mater, celebrate the accomplishments of the ECE department and our fellow graduates, and network with one another.
