Alumni Activities

All who have completed a degree at a university of applied sciences are called the alumni, which is Latin for pupils and nowadays refers to former students of a university or an institution of higher education. The alumni of Savonia UAS are offered an opportunity to network in diverse fields. You are welcome to join alumni activities!

Networking will pay off
