Thank you for your commitment to support the College of Engineering. Here are some of our current giving priorities.
Funds to support our faculty allow us to increase both course offerings and research activity. Increased course offerings help our engineering students graduates more quickly and with a lighter debt load. A higher level of research activity helps us attract promising graduate students and recruit and retain top faculty.
Donors can support named chairs, professorships & fellowships to enhance the research productivity and prestige of our programs. Funds are also being raised for a faculty excellence program designed to reward faculty accomplishments and to ensure that our faculty are not hired by a competitive institution.
Building new programs within the College of Engineering is essential to staying on the cutting edge. Scholarships, fellowships and recruitment funding are needed to attract and retain the best and brightest undergraduate and graduate students.
Our outreach programs are well-known throughout northern Nevada. These programs are an opportunity for us to become a national leader in engineering education. Funds are used to create courses that train K-12 teachers how to implement engineering into their curricula, and work is being done to influence state curriculum requirements.
Additional Corporate Partners will assist the Dean in seizing opportunities that are available and also to open the doors to our students to major hiring opportunities. For more information please visit the Corporate Partners page.
