SEDTAPP and the Penn State Engineering Alumni Society (PSEAS) sponsor numerous initiatives throughout the year and we encourage alumni to volunteer to make these events and programs successful.

Department opportunities

  • Student Mentoring: Volunteer to be paired as an alumni mentor to an undergraduate student through ASAE. 
  • Classroom Engagement: Volunteer your time as a guest speaker.

College Opportunities

  • PSEAS Faculty/Staff Awards: Help PSEAS in the annual selection process to recognize outstanding teachers, advisers, researchers, and support staff in the College of Engineering.
  • Penn State Regional Rube Goldberg Machine Contest: Held in February, this annual "Olympics of Complexity" challenges students to move beyond traditional problem solving. Alumni volunteers are needed to help with judging, timekeeping, program distribution, and other tasks.
