Alumni & Friends

Our highly sought-after graduates are employed in diverse and exciting disciplines all across the world. UC's Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering Alumni have formed a professional and strategic network which enhances and shapes New Zealand's economic and social future.

Stay connected and become a Friend

All UC graduates (automatically) become members of the UC Alumni Association – which includes our alumni and current and former staff members. Keep us informed about your contact details using the UC Alumni Hub or by contacting the UC Alumni Office. Mechanical Engineering at UC is inclusive of many key people through past and ongoing research and project collaborations. We count them as invaluable Friends of the Department. If you wish to connect with us as a Friend of the Department or desire to stay connected via professional or social media, please get in touch with us per e-mail: mechpublicity@canterbury.ac.nz.
