The REA hosts several events throughout the year, including career nights for students, technical presentations for continuing education credits, and social events. Many of our events are hybrid format to allow SoE alumni both “on the banks” and “off the banks” to participate.

Stay tuned for details on a SoE-wide mentoring program, scheduled to roll out in Spring 2023. Email REA at if interested in serving as a mentor.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our events as we help grow the beloved community at Rutgers School of Engineering.
