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.

Giving to the annual fund is membership into the Capstone Engineering Society.

As a thank you, contributors will receive a one-year subscription to the Capstone Engineer, the College of Engineering alumni magazine, which features updates on research, teaching, and student, faculty and alumni news.
