Build a strong alliance between UCSD alumni in industry and current students! Alumni have one:one opportunity in their own workplace to help guide and inspire students with their career goals and aspirations and establish a relationship with a student for future recruiting/mentoring opportunities. Students witness first-hand your company culture and day-to-day operations. This experience also helps them further refine their post-graduation plans and career goals.

Triton TablesUC San Diego Alumni/Students Triton Tables

The UC San Diego Alumni Association invites you to host a Triton Table at your home or a venue of your choice. As a host, you agree to provide dinner for up to 10 undergraduate students and create an informal and welcoming environment where you can share your Triton experience and life after UCSD. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions and your advice. This is a great way to give back and impart valuable wisdom to the next generation of UCSD alumni.

With 27 Triton Engineering Student Organizations (TESC) now part of the Jacobs School, there's so much going on all the time. Our engineering student organizations present their activities and projects to the Deans, faculty, alumni and guests and everyone participates in small round table discussions on a topic relating to professional leadership.
