The purpose of the Engineering Graduates of the Last Decade (eGOLD) Board is to

  • Reconnect, re-engage, and encourage lifelong connections with our recent engineering alumni.
  • Strengthen relationships with recent graduates and encourage their continued involvement in support of the College via programs, events, and communications geared toward their interests.
  • Give counsel to the College on matters of concern to recent alumni and provide guidance from a recent alumni perspective.
  • Serve as ambassadors of the College through their leadership, enabling the College to connect more meaningfully with its recent graduates across the country and throughout the world.
