Professor Valerie Linton, Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences Executive Dean, has written the editorial for the inaugural issue of the EIS Alumni Newsletter. The EIS Alumni Newsletter is a new initiative, aimed to provide tailored messaging to EIS graduates and to act as a vehicle for EIS to communicate and engage with our Alumni.


Welcome to this, the inaugural edition of our Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences alumni newsletter.

Hopefully, your time at the University of Wollongong immersed you in a culture of creativity and innovation, and you left with much more than simply a qualification. Certainly, on our side, we watch with great interest as our graduates make their way in the world, taking their enthusiasm, knowledge and skills, applying them to make a difference.

Through this newsletter, we want to share with you our passion for making a difference too: from our research, to our outreach to the next generation of students – seeing one inspiration lead to another.

There are many opportunities for alumni to get involved with the University, from alumni events to advisory groups and as mentors. We see a future of important challenges facing society, and we want to provide inspiring opportunities for you to share your views, expertise and experiences, connecting with our staff, students and your fellow alumni, and interacting with our research and innovation ecosystem. We invite you to join us as we strive to transform people and the world we live in.

Do you wish to meet fellow engineering graduates and employers, and enhance our curriculum? We are delighted to extend an invitation to interested alumni for an upcoming after work event for alumni and engineering employers on Tuesday 14th August 2018. We will provide insights into exciting student projects like the Desert Rose House, hear how mentoring between alumni and students is emerging at UOW, and hear how our Faculty is having an impact on the global stage. Members of Engineers Australia will attend the event as part of their accreditation visit to UOW, and we encourage your active participation in this process. If you are interested in being involved, please do get in touch with Carly Evans, our Alumni Coordinator for the Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences to lodge your interest and to seek further details.

We hope that you find this newsletter interesting and look forward to your feedback. You are part of our legacy, and we hope you will be an active collaborator as we invest in making a difference in our world.

Regards
Valerie
