College of Engineering alumni and friends are models of philanthropy, volunteering, and ambassadorship. You have supported undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, and state-of-the-art educational research programs. You empower a faculty devoted to breaking new ground, and offer your services as advisors and leaders as we bridge the College with the broader community. Your support has helped COE become the institution it is today, and we are thankful for all of your efforts, commitment, and generosity.
For many graduate students, economic considerations are the deciding factor in their choice to pursue
studies at COE. Philanthropic support of fellowships will provide these scholars with direct aid, and by
lessening or removing financial obstacles, help deliver the freedom to focus on valuable research and investigative experiences.
Donor-endowed professorships boost COE’s ability to attract and retain extraordinary researchers, teachers, and mentors who are confronting society’s most pressing challenges. These endowed funds recognize outstanding professors at all stages of their careers—and their presence, in turn, draws talented students to the college.
