About Western Tech Alumni

The Western Tech Alumni host workshops for students about how to get a job, run an interview prep program, and use the alumni network to help connect students with the opportunity to do work that they love.

Our events have been sponsored in the past by Western University's Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering departments, however Western Tech Alumni is not an official Western affiliate organization.
