Give time and expertise

Here are some ideas for you to get involved with the University. Remember that you can reap the rewards of keeping in touch with us, and fellow alumni, by widening your business and social networks, or even recruiting talented alumni for your company.

We look forward to hearing from you if you can offer your time or expertise.

International communities

We have a growing number of international communities. These groups are run by, and for, alumni. We encourage the groups to host a variety of events throughout the year, including an event during our Worldwide Alumni Celebration (WAC week).

Organise a reunion

The alumni team is keen to help alumni stay in touch with each other, as well as the University. Reunions play a vital role in maintaining a vibrant and active alumni community and we are very grateful to those who give their time to organise these for their contemporaries and classmates. We are happy to offer support, so do contact us if you wish to organise a reunion. Our new alumni directory is an invaluable resource that you can access to contact your classmates.

Help shape future courses

Why not offer your time and expertise as course industry representative, guest lecturer or by contributing to our Industrial Advisory Panels, helping to shape future courses.

Consider Cranfield for your research and consultancy

You have first-hand experience of the world-class faculty and facilities we have to offer here at Cranfield - please recommend us to colleagues who are seeking partners for research or consultancy projects. We have an international reach and work with some of the biggest names in the business, so you can be sure of our professionalism and commitment.

Offer a placement
