Each year, the Engineering Alumni Association (EAA) hosts an event in February as part of National Engineers Week. As of this tenth-year event (EAA Engineers Week 2014 Reception & Program), the 10-year total of cash awards was very near the third of a million dollar mark at about $329,000 that was presented to UH engineering students and organizations from corporations, professional engineering organizations, Cougar engineers, and friends of UH engineering.
The EAA has created a new initiative called "Connecting Alumni to Students," which is a reunion event that brings both Cougar engineers and UH students together for networking purposes.
The Alumni Awards Gala is held every June to recognize outstanding and distinguished Cullen College alumni and faculty. Find out more about these prestigious awards, past recipients and the nomination process.
The EAA meets every second Thursday of every month at 5:45 p.m. in the Dean's Conference Room of Engineering Bldg. 2. Every August, the EAA hosts an annual meeting and networking social as a means of generating new membership and voting in new board members and leadership.
The EAA hosts a tailgate every home game during the fall football season at the EAA pavilion on the west side of Robertson Stadium. Also, EAA purchases a block of tickets for engineering alumni wishing to purchase season tickets.
