Support the College of Engineering this Give Day!

By connecting people and technology, the College of Engineering is working to solve the world’s most pressing problems and create the next generation of engineering leaders and entrepreneurs.

 

The college, our eight departments and our student clubs have demonstrated tremendous flexibility and resilience in the last year. Our community has found silver linings along the way, like gaining experience dealing with unforeseen circumstances, solving unique problems, learning innovative technology and connecting in new ways.

 

Today is your opportunity to invest in Aggie Engineers in a way that means the most to you. Excellence funds make it possible for college and departmental leadership to be both decisive in responding to immediate needs and nimble in pursuing unexpected opportunities when they arise. The Student Hardship Fund provides financial support to students facing adversity. Our student clubs are providing invaluable leadership opportunities, hands-on experience outside of the classroom and community building which has been particularly essential for students to stay connected in the last year.

 

Your gift on Give Day will immediately support Aggie Engineers as they prepare for graduation and beyond. Help Aggie Engineers create a sustainable world through socially responsible engineering!

Time is running out to make an impact! Join us!
