As an alum you are important to Chalmers. We hope that you want to stay in contact with us after graduation, regardless of where you are in the world. With this in mind, we have compiled information about how you can stay involved in your university, develop in your professional role and meet other like-minded alumni. As a "chalmerist", you are our ambassador in Sweden and the rest of the world.

Your experiences of studies and jobs are valuable to us and our students. With your experiences, we can show current and future students what education at Chalmers can lead to. As an alum, you are an asset to us in the form of contacts with the world of work. It helps us to find work placements and degree projects for students but also to develop research collaborations.

It was gratifying to have that network behind you, with friends who are good at so many different things.

Alumni associations

After leaving Chalmers, you have the opportunity to get involved in one or more of the associations for everyone who has studied or worked at the university.
