CAE Homecoming Weekend 2021

We have a whole weekend of excitement planned for you to engage, interact and experience the College of Aeronautics and Engineering.

Homecomings exist to celebrate the unique shared culture of the university and mark the passage of time - and the College of Aeronautics and Engineering has transformed. From programs existing in separated colleges, to the intentional decision to combine aeronautics, engineering, and engineering technology all under one roof,  we are excited to celebrate our continued successes with you! 

CAE Alumni and Friends Reception and Award Ceremony Registration


Unfortunately, we have decided to postpone our CAE VIP Alumni Tent at the Homecoming Football Game and the TopGolf Outing due to the feedback we have been receiving from our community. While our hearts are heavy with not being able to celebrate with our alumni and friends all weekend long, we are excited to see you on October 1st at our Aeronautics and Engineering Building Expansion Groundbreaking Ceremony, followed by our Alumni and Friends Award Ceremony and Reception.  Both these events are outdoors, and we have taken measures to ensure our guests are comfortable in any weather condition we may experience at that time. 

Our team is looking forward to recreating our original Homecoming celebration in 2022.

See details below regarding the Friday evening reception tickets and dessert at the Design Innovation Hub.

All ticket proceeds will benefit our new building expansion project.
