The UCF College of Engineering and Computer Science has an alumni network of over 42,000 strong! The college alumni chapter is a great way to stay connected to the university and college programs and help make an impact for current students. The alumni chapter hosts several events each semester, including the Senior Design Showcase and Career Kickoff. This is a dues free organization where you can connect with other alumni, receive early intel on upcoming events and panels, and maintain a direct line to the Dean’s office.

A Message from the CECS Alumni Chapter Chair

Hello my fellow Knights!

Welcome to the UCF College of Engineering & Computer Science Alumni Chapter webpage!

I’m the current chair, Sondra Kennett.

To those who are already interacting with CECS students and volunteering for the many events our chapter sponsors for the college – Thank You!

We would love to welcome you to join us as an official member of the alumni chapter to share more of your expertise and insights with our team. As a chapter member, you’ll be a part of the planning for our events throughout the year and help us develop new ways of connecting with students and alumni! The chapter is a way for our alumni to give back, to network and engage with fellow alumni and students, and be part of something that will continue to grow and evolve.

We sincerely hope you continue to engage and volunteer, and we also encourage you to invite your fellow UCF alums to join us during one of our events – especially our Senior Design Showcase!

We are active on LinkedIn and Facebook – please be sure to follow us there and we all look forward to meeting you soon!
