Keep in touch with old friends, connect with other alumni and give back to the University of Waterloo Electrical and Computer Engineering community – we offer lots of ways to stay connected, from attending alumni events and reunions to mentoring current students, acting as a fundraising volunteer or helping to fund future Waterloo initiatives.


Whether you’re interesting in being a guest speaker to current students or organizations such as Women in Engineering or Engineers Without Borders, helping to plan your class reunion, acting as a fundraising volunteer or want to find out about other volunteer opportunities, the Faculty of Engineering Office of Alumni Affairs offers a variety of opportunities for alumni to donate their time.
