The UNITECH Alumni Association (UAA) is a network of more than 300 high potential engineers who have successfully completed the prestigious UNITECH International program. Our goal is for all UNITECH Alumni to identify with and participate actively in the network.
We want to achieve this by creating value to the members in the following focus areas:
Content: The UAA shall provide content by engaging resources from insideand outside the network
Career: The UAA shall act as a match-maker between its members and career opportunities
Friendship: Assist our members in maintaining old friendship & creating new bonds across UNITECH generations
- Spirit: Maintaining the feeling of being part of something unique and exclusive, a network with a spirit of open, honest and inspiring discussions
The UAA has around 400 members from numerous nationalities who live all over the world. To reach them on a local level, the UAA has established 8 Local UNITECH Chapters (LUCs) who are lead by one or a team of LUC Coordinators (LCCs). LUC organize a variety of events such as company visits, discussions, sports activities, and social dinners. International events and a variety of services, such as a by-monthly newsletter and a career platform, are organized and coordinated by the UAA Council.
Strategy Task Force (STF)
Un 2009, 10 years after the first student joined the UNITECH program, the UAA Council established a Strategy Task Force (STF) to re-evaluate the UAA's strategy. Over the prior 10 years, the association had evolved from a small group of students into a real community, including people of different ages, cultures, backgrounds and, especially, with different experiences, interests and developed skills.
The goal of the Strategy Task Force was to see what the different members perceive as "valuable" and how the UAA can provide value through events and services. In order to so, we conducted interviews with all stakeholders of the network, including not only UAA members, but also UNITECH students, Corporate and Academic Partners and the UNITECH International Office. During the General Assembly 2010 in Zurich, this mission statement was included in the Constitution, which you can find here in pdf form.
