In 1998, the USF Engineering Alumni Society (EAS) (http://www.usf.edu/engineering/alumni-friends/engineering-alumni-society.aspx) founded the Corporate Ambassador Program (CAP) to foster a closer relationship between College of Engineering students and the thousands of alumni. The Ambassadors serve as liaisons between the engineering community at large and the College; among them is Zachary White, Engineer at MCCST.
Corporate Ambassadors benefit from:
- Increased visibility within their organization as a champion of their company and the engineering community
- Strong network with USF resources and potential partnerships with peer companies
- Opportunities to simultaneously give back to USF students and discover the best suited talent for your company
Ambassadors facilitate success with the College, such as:
- Completing company research projects supported by students and faculty
- Assisting EAS in distributing over $30,000 annually in scholarships and conference travel grants
- Increasing the presence of corporations on campus through building upgrades and participating in Engineering EXPO and professional societies
- Through its rich academic and research programs, the USF College of Engineering offers the corporate community a valuable resource for workforce development where everyone – alumni, students and local companies – benefits. Find out how your organization can play a key role in the newly released College of Engineering 2025 Strategic Plan.
You can participate from wherever your organization is located. Call Carissa (813-684-3979) or any EAS officer for more information.
