Under the umbrella of the University's Alumni Center, the College's Alumni Unit is concerned with follow-up and support systems for its graduates and for students expected to graduate, as it provides various programs and services that help graduates prepare for the labor market. The unit also works to develop communication channels with its graduates and exploit their professional and scientific expertise. These efforts aim to enhance opportunities for professional success and permanent communication with the scientific and practical community for beneficiaries. 

The Alumni Unit carries out a set of tasks and work aimed at documenting and updating the database and information related to the college’s graduates and their achievements. The unit also works to obtain feedback and opinions from graduates through periodic meetings and satisfaction surveys, with the aim of improving the college’s services and meeting the needs of graduates. 

The unit encourages graduates to support their college in various aspects, and is interested in organizing special events for graduates with the aim of clarifying the college’s achievements and current activities. The unit also works to encourage graduates to participate in college activities, by organizing events and opportunities for communication and interaction. 

In addition, the Alumni and Career Development Center provides a means of continuous communication with graduates, by assigning them a special e-mail. This aims to maintain communication and provide support and career guidance to graduates in various fields. 

The Alumni and Career Development Center has two main objectives:

The first objective is to provide counseling guidance to students regarding planning and preparing them for a job.

The second objective is to strengthen and develop the graduate community, both before and after graduation, and to enhance the connection and communication between students, graduates and the university. 

Cooperation took place between the Alumni Unit, the Continuing Education and Faculty Development Unit, and the Subul platform of the Hadaf Center to provide workshops and lectures for graduates. All graduates are invited to attend lectures, whether in person or remotely. 

In addition, the college maintains alumni outreach by planning to meet and invite all college graduates every year.
