College of Engineering
Support the College of Engineering this Give Day!

The College of Engineering teaches our students how to test ideas and create products, whether they are physical or digital, along with the core aspects of creating a venture and running a business. We are preparing students from all backgrounds to serve as tomorrow’s engineering leaders at an unprecedented rate with over 1,000 graduating B.S. engineers each year.


We remain deeply committed to the student experience providing a multitude of resources and opportunities to enrich students’ lives.

On Give Day, we are asking our alumni and friends to invest in our students as well as our faculty and research. You can choose to support one of our eight outstanding departments listed in the drop down menu above. Or, to support the college broadly, you can make a gift to the Annual Fund (providing the dean flexible funds to respond to opportunities and initiatives for students and faculty), the Engineering Student Design Center (where we will be stationed on Picnic Day between 10 a.m.- 1 p.m.) or the Student Startup Center (featured in the video above).

To inspire your support, our Dean’s Executive Committee (DEC) and our college leadership have invested in challenges.


When 50 gifts have been made towards the DEC challenge, an additional $12,500 will be added to the College of Engineering’s Annual Fund from the DEC. Gifts to all areas of College of Engineering count for the challenge, so please, click on the challenge and support Engineering students and faculty in a way that’s meaningful to you!


College of Engineering’s leadership (including Dean Curtis, assistant and associate deans and department chairs) have collectively contributed $6,000 to the College of Engineering for Give Day to encourage CoE staff and faculty to invest in the college. When 40 College of Engineering employees click on the Staff and Faculty challenge and make a gift back to the College of Engineering during Give Day, this $6,000 will be added to our totals for Give Day.
