We are proud of our alumni, currently numbering around 1,800 strong, who utilize their degree to advance knowledge, contribute to the science, educate future generations and impact our world by working for private, public and nonprofit entities.

Serve as a guest speaker for a class or for a student organization meeting.
Host a student as an intern or as part of a job shadowing opportunity.
Share your experience and network with students at our annual Career Day event in November.
Volunteer to serve on our alumni advisory panel.
Support student scholarships and research activities by providing financial support to the department.
