Students need opportunities to explore the world of engineering outside of the classroom. Programs such as E-Week, internships and the engineering learning community provide those opportunities. They allow students to work in teams, develop critical communication and leadership skills and plan and implement big projects in a competitive setting-putting their classroom knowledge to the test while experiencing the adventure awaiting them in their chosen career path. Gifts supporting these activities ensure students have access to these opportunities for personal and professional growth.
Resources available through this account provide discretionary dollars for emerging initiatives and programs that currently do not have available funding. The Dean utilizes this fund to provide opportunities for faculty and students, research activities, and program support.
General Classroom and Laboratory Facilities
The college maintains high standards in the technology and equipment used to prepare students for the demands of the industry. While both the college and the university have made considerable investments in upgrading existing classrooms with modern technology, more effort in this area is still needed. Funding to upgrade current facilities while making the most of their existing space will provide an optimal learning environment for students. It will also help the college keep pace with peer institutions and secondary education facilities.
A gift to this fund supports the greatest needs of the college and allows it to respond to priority projects or needs as they arise.
Your gift to support student programs will provide important resources to ensure that students have access to the full-range of opportunities for personal and professional growth through the College of Engineering.
A gift to this fund will enhance student experiences outside the classroom by providing students the opportunity to get involved, develop critical leadership and teamwork skills and build lasting relationships with classmates and faculty advisors.
Currently there are no other funds available for this area.
