The UCF College of Engineering and Computer Science Alumni Chapter hosts various networking, professional development and fundraising events throughout the year, but the chapter celebrates extra big during its two annual signature events:


CECS Alumni Weekend
Each spring during March, the College of Engineering and Computer Science and the CECS UCF Alumni Chapter host their annual CECS Alumni Weekend. Start your weekend off on Thursday evening at the CECS Alumni Honors Reception. Enjoy a Knight of celebration as the dean hosts a cocktail reception for alumni of all ages in recognition of alumni achievements and CECS milestones. On Friday, enjoy a day on the greens with fellow alumni and friends for the CECS Alumni Chapter Golf Classic. Golf proceeds benefit student scholarships, as well as the chapter.

We owe our successes in large part to the generous contributions of the alumni, friends, corporations, and foundations who have supported our efforts. At the College of Engineering and Comptuer Science every gift has an impact that extends beyond the campus into our communities, and every gift is deeply appreciated. We thank those who have invested in the college and inspired our students and faculty to pursue their academic and professional dreams.
