Upcoming Events

The William States Lee College of Engineering hosts numerous events for alumni throughout the year. Details will be updated here regularly and announced via our social media pages and email. To ensure you receive our alumni emails, fill out the Update Your Information form. Additionally, we encourage you to attend UNC Charlotte Alumni Association events and will feature some listings below. We look forward to seeing you soon!



Saturday, March 25
9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Toby Creek (near UNC Charlotte)
College of Engineering students, faculty, staff and alumni will help clean up a greenway right by UNC Charlotte as part of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services's annual Big Spring Clean event. Last year, we had nearly 50 Engineering volunteers attend and we want even more this year! An enormous amount of trash gets into our local streams and lakes from storm drains, flooded yards, and illegal dumping which degrades recreation areas, harms wildlife, and looks terrible for the community. Trash bags, gloves, snacks, and water will be provided; volunteers should make sure to wear old clothes (that can get wet/dirty) and sturdy boots or shoes. Location details will be sent to volunteers prior to the event. The last day to register is Wednesday, March 22.

#NinerNationGives (March 28-30)

Sign up to be a #NinerNationGives Ambassador for the College of Engineering! In addition to special UNC Charlotte swag, all Ambassadors will receive a toolkit with campaign graphics and a unique URL that you can share on your social media sites and encourage your friends and family to donate to our Engineering scholarships and programs. Your unique URL will allow you to track all of the donations and dollars you bring in (in real time!). Prizes will be awarded to the Ambassadors who bring in the most money! See the #NinerNationGives website for additional information or contact Hannah Jakob for questions. **REMEMBER: Engineering alumni participation rates (the number of alumni who give, not the total amount raised!) impacts our US World News & Report rankings, so please encourage your former classmates to give this year...every single gift helps!


Tuesday, April 4
6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Cabarrus Brewing Company, 329 McGill Avenue, Concord NC 28027
Join us for a special Beer with an Engineer event! Network with your Engineering classmates then listen to an engaging discussion about engineering and technology by one of the College’s own faculty member, Dr. Hamed Tabkhi, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Food and drinks will be provided, and a cash bar will be available as well. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen many of you in-person, so we hope you can join us for this fun evening!


Wednesday, April 19
6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
UNC Charlotte College of Engineering
Our Alumni Speed Mentoring event will give students the chance to ask alumni professionals about their education, career path, and more in a smaller and more intimate setting than the College's large recruiting fairs. The event format is a round-robin, just like speed dating. Only 10 students and 10 alumni will be able to attend, so every student will get the chance to speak with every professional. Food, drinks, and parking will be provided.


Wednesday, May 10
5:30 - 8:00 p.m. EDT
UNC Charlotte College of Engineering
All alumni are welcome to attend our Engineering Alumni Council meeting. Dinner will be served to in-person attendees, and we will offer a virtual option for alumni who can't attend the meeting in-person. RSVP to receive directions and more detailed information. We hope to see you there!

Future Meeting Dates:
August 9, 2023
November 8, 2023
