About

The alumni association for the College of Engineering, called the Capstone Engineering Society, supports growth, fosters relationships, encourages philanthropy, invests in students and engages alumni through fundraising, events and networking. Contributions made to this annual fund provide crucial discretionary funding for priority needs within the College.

There is currently over $2 million dollars in Capstone Engineering Society Endowed Scholarship fund. During the 2020-2021 academic year, 41 students were awarded $101,250 in scholarships.

  • Mentor UPP, supported by CES, provided professional and peer mentors to nearly 200 undergraduate students in 2020-2021.
  • Networking receptions, alumni panels and industry related events are held throughout the year and hosted by CES.
  • The annual fund provides need-based assistance for student organizations and competition teams and removes barriers of entry for participation and involvement.
  • UA’s College of Engineering is committed to educating tomorrow’s engineers and computer scientists who will continue leading our state and world in the construction, automotive and high-tech industries. Generations of future engineers and the growing economy are greatly affected by these philanthropic contributions. Therefore, the University looks to its alumni and friends to support this great institution in order to impact the future.

The Difference You Make

“While the encouragement we receive from professors and professional staff is a great motivator, it is the personal drive created by a true feeling of investment and belonging that drive each and every one of us to do more, and to be more, for ourselves and the family that has taken us in here. My education has taken off with your action as an integral catalyst.” – Jimmy McGrath, Computer Engineering, Senior

“Your gift lessens the financial burdens of this endeavor on my family…. I know that my education is giving me the tools I need to succeed as a chemical engineer. In the future I can see myself applying the knowledge I have accumulated as well as the interpersonal skills I have developed through my engineering classes and involvement in extracurricular activities to become a well-regarded and exceptional engineer….With your support I know I can do great things with my future.” – Annaliese Baietto, Chemical Engineering
