We are currently raising funds for the following specific projects:

  • College of Engineering Student Support Fund
Donations to the College of Engineering Student Support Fund will go directly to enhancing the College of Engineering's facilitated study sessions, which are designed to support and supplement students' first-year course work. Available to all first-year engineering students to help them through the difficult transition to first-year engineering, these study sessions are part of the college's ongoing commitment to student success.
  • Engineering Advancement Trust (EAT)

Since its inception in 1986, the Engineering Advancement Trust (EAT) has allocated close to $3.5 million to upgrade and replace laboratory equipment for undergraduate students. With technology changing at a lightning pace, EAT funding has enabled the college to acquire many pieces of valuable laboratory and shop equipment.
