Sciences Alumni Network

Connecting sciences alumni for professional development and collaboration.

This network connects alumni from the four schools of the Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology:

  • Agriculture, Food and Wine
  • Animal and Veterinary Sciences
  • Biological Sciences
  • Physical Sciences

The Sciences Alumni Network provides alumni the opportunity to meet fellow alumni and reconnect with their University in a meaningful way. The purpose of the network is to foster interdisciplinary networking, promote peer to peer mentoring and enable opportunities for alumni professional and personal development.

As a graduate from the Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology you automatically become a member of the Sciences Alumni Network. Make sure to update your details so you will receive information about the launch of the network and future events.

Be sure to come along to our next event to connect with other members and learn more about our activities. If you are interested in joining the Committee please contact Carolyn McLean, Alumni Relations (Sciences).
