Engineers’ Day 2022

November 4, 2022 All day

The College of Engineering invites you to campus for the 75th Annual Engineers’ Day Celebration!

Make plans to join us in Madison on November 4th for cocktails, h’oeuvres, dinner, and a celebration of you—our outstanding engineering alumni. It’s a great time of the year to come back to campus, revisit favorite campus spaces, and reconnect with fellow engineers. The Badger football team also takes on Maryland on November 5. You can find tickets and tailgate before the game at the Union South Badger Bash.

Can’t make it? Consider attending our College of Engineering Alumni Homecoming Tailgate on Saturday, October 22. More information.

Don’t miss out connecting with fellow engineering alum!
