The NED University Alumni Network (NEDAN) was formed in 2004 as a network for encouraging the promotion of alumni related activities. This forum enables graduates of the former College as well as of the University to initiate their support and activities related to student welfare, academics and research. The NEDIAN activities have since been extended to focus on alumni relations and their efforts in the support of the University. Alumni interest and goodwill has been encouraged throughout, thus resulting in the development of intellectual and emotional ties between the members and their University. However, the present setup now requires to be formalized and strengthened in order to ensure the success of the activities of alumni in different parts of the world, and specifically in the Western region.
The Alumni Office working directly under the supervision of the Pro-Vice Chancellor will provide a range of benefits and services to the alumni; while also serving as a means to facilitate and enhance the interactions among the alumni. The Office intends to bring all Alumni activities under one umbrella by expanding its scope to all former students and individuals associated with the NED University/College and connecting them with the aim of ensuring and enabling the promotion of effective relationships amongst its members.
To extend the spirit of NEDAN, one additional category of Friends of Alumni has been included in the Network in addition to Alumni (only former graduates).
Candidates who have successfully passed any undergraduate or post graduate degree from NEDUET shall be considered an alumnus of this university. However, individuals of the affiliated institutions are not considered as the alumnus of the university. (See Friends of NEDAN.)
Friends of NEDAN can enjoy and avail the same benefits as the Members of the NEDAN. This category includes the alumni of the Institutions affiliated with the NED University, individuals who have supported the University in various positions and domains – for example non-engineering faculty members, prominent members of the civil society, philanthropists and other corporate entities. Friends of NEDAN shall be notified by the Executive Body of NEDAN.

All finance for the project would be met from amounts received in excess of Rs. 20 Million (Endowment amount) of NEDAN. For each project accepted for execution, the Governing Body will nominate an Alumnus from outside the University as an Auditor.
