Miners Forever. Stronger Together.

The UTEP Miner Nation is made up of more than 100,000 Alumni living and working around the globe. When you link up with each other through MinerLInk and the UTEP Alumni Association, you and your fellow Miners become part of a one-of-a-kind network, fueled by the shared power of our UTEP degrees. Together, we are Miner strong.

Whether you remain a free Picks Up Member or level-up to a dues-based Lifetime Membership, your membership in UTEP Alumni Association is forever. 

It’s your way of sharing with each other - and with the world around you - that being a Miner means something. Think about it. You are part of a more than 100-year history of what began as the State School of Mines and Metallurgy - Miners then, Miners now, Miners forever. And our collective successes have enabled UTEP to become the powerhouse that it is today. 

Once you’re signed in and signed up, take a look around MinerLink. There are a lot of ways you can build your network, and you just might find the perfect opportunity to throw on the ol’ orange and navy… 

Picks Up, Miners!… Forever.
