Automotive Engineering


Creating Connections

One of the best ways to measure the success of a program is to look at the accomplishments of its alumni. The Automotive Engineering Department alumni are a key asset in proactively expanding our students' opportunities through scholarship, research, and outreach. There are around 800 graduates, and we’re thrilled to report that nearly 99 percent of our former students work in industry or academia. One of our primary missions is to increase the connection between alumni, faculty, and students through mentorship opportunities and industry involvement.

Expanding Opportunities

We partner with alumni and friends to proactively expand the opportunities of our students through vertical collaboration, sustainability-focused research, and strengthening community through industry collaborations. Areas of focus that significantly increase the talent and educational offerings include Scholarships, Fellowships, and Endowments.
