Office of Advancement

Welcome to the Office of Advancement’s homepage at the College of Engineering, and thank you for your interest in learning more about supporting the College at the level of your choice.

The generosity of alumni and friends helps our students and faculty tackle engineering challenges today and build the world of tomorrow. Every time an alumnus or friend invests in our future by supporting a student or faculty researcher, he or she makes a positive impact on society. You can be part of this mission because your personal philanthropy is critical to our success.

Your support helps us better prepare our students for tomorrow’s problems and enables us to push further into the horizon of knowledge discovery for generations to come.

We invite you to learn more about the funding priorities of the College or a department or lab, the Brilliant Futures Campaign, and the importance of supporting the College of Engineering through the Engineering Annual Fund, enduring gifts such as endowments or your estate plan. If you would like more information or have any questions, please contact Renata Szandra.
