Description

University of Canterbury - Mechanical Engineering Alumni Reunion

We would like to invite all of our alumni back to the University of Canterbury to see our new facilities and labs (which opened this year as part of a $163 million engineering building refurbishment), celebrate our recent achievements in the Department of Mechanical Engineering with the wider alumni community, and unveil plans for a special project.

Alumni from all years are welcome to attend, from our Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics Engineering programmes, whether you were a past student or staff member.

This is a great opportunity to meet up with old friends and classmates, especially if you are celebrating a special anniversary (for example a 10, 20, 30, or 40+ year class reunion).

Saturday 13 April - 2-7pm - Alumni Reunion Function*

On Saturday 13 April, we will be hosting an alumni reunion function. This includes a Head of Department welcome, short academic talks from our top professors on their current research, behind the scenes tours of our new state-of-the-art labs and facilities, and campus tours.

The event ends with a cocktail reception with drinks and canapes, giving you a chance to catch up and network, and hear from a guest speaker.

The above event is held in the Engineering Core, Engineering Precinct, University of Canterbury (Ilam Campus), with the entrance off Creyke Rd.

Please note that guests are encouraged to catch up with their old classmates and friends in smaller groups at one of the many restaurants or bars in Christchurch for dinner after the event, organised separately by individuals and classes. See the website for more details.

*This is a ticketed event. Every guest requires a ticket, to help cover costs of the event. Partners/guests are welcome to attend, but no children please. Each ticket gives guests access to the event, food and two drink tickets. Early bird tickets available before 31 January at a discounted rate.


Sunday 14 April - 10am-2pm - Engineering Heritage City Bus Tour**

On Sunday 14 April, we will be hosting an Engineering Heritage City Bus Tour, which will take approximately two hours.

Stops will include new buildings and precincts, earthquake hit zones such as ChristChurch Cathedral and red zones, and the old UC city campus (currently the Arts Centre) with a chance to get out and explore. The tour will have commentary on the city's redevelopment.

** This is a ticketed event. Partners/guests and family members (including children) are welcome to attend. Every guest requires a ticket to help cover the costs of running the guided bus tour.
