Official E-Mail ID Project

Project Overview

The Alumni Association has taken the initiative to enhance the communication and collaboration between the Student, Faculty, Management and Alumni through digitization and technology. As a first step towards digitally connected campus, each stakeholder of UCE,OU is being provided with an official email ID (@uceou.edu) that binds them to college with an official identity in addition to giving them a wide range of benefits irrespective of their presence on campus or anywhere globally.
