You Can Help Provide a World-Class Engineering Education

The College of Engineering has made it a priority to ensure that all of our students receive a world-class education and exceptional student experience. Please consider helping us provide one of a kind educational opportunities to our students. 

Contributions to our student scholarship funds, engineering competition teams and student clubs and organizations help us provide real-world hands-on design and research opportunities to the next generation of engineering leaders. 

Your Vandal Giving Day donation will support teams like our Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Formula Hybrid and Clean Snowmobile teams, our student clubs and organizations like our chapter of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and student scholarship recipients to pursue research into 21st century’s grand engineering challenges. 

Please help us shape the future for leadership in engineering education by supporting one or more of our students’ exceptional experiences. 

Student Scholarships

College of Engineering scholarships have allowed Alexa Aguilar from Boise, Idaho the peace of mind to dedicate her time to focus on her studies and extracurricular real-world engineering opportunities. Alexa recently was selected to participate in a NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory internship and previously worked in a Micron chip fabrication laboratory. Alexa is hoping to use her engineering education to one day soon develop energy harvesting technologies.

Student Competition Teams

Vandal Engineering teams compete annually against the nation’s top universities in engineering design competitions. Competitions like the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Formula Hybrid program in New Hampshire and SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge in Michigan as well as the not so well known chemical engineering International Environmental Design (IEE/WERC) contest in New Mexico challenge our students to innovate across disciplines to solve real problems. Last year’s IEE/WERC 1st place winner J-Team is pictured below.

Student Clubs and Organizations

Student clubs and professional organizations are a vital part of the engineering educational experience. They provide our students the opportunity to join their peers to apply their education and serve the greater good in unique ways. Our UI chapter of Engineers Without Borders for example, has committed to a 5 year project in the high-altitude village of Carani, Bolivia to construct a sustainable water supply system to better serve the needs of the entire community.
