Every engineering student at the University of Idaho participates in hands-on experiences that challenge their creativity and teamwork skills to make a difference in the world.

 

Gifts made during Vandal Giving Day support:

 

Dean’s Endowment to Support Diversity & Inclusive Initiatives 


Improving an ever-changing world requires the knowledge and skillsets of a diverse engineering community. We need more engineers, and we need engineers who add value to the teams they serve by bringing different perspectives and experiences to the table to solve problems.

 

Essential to that vision is finding new ways to increase the number of women and underrepresented minorities among our students and faculty.

 

Engineering Ambassador Engagement with K-12 Students


College of Engineering Ambassadors are integral to the growth and success of our college. Representing all majors and engineering disciplines, these highly motivated students work with visiting prospective students and their families to help groups learn more about life at the University of Idaho. 

 

Students also participate in outreach events and activities designed to introduce K-12 students to engineering and STEM concepts.

 

 

Student Clubs & Organizations


With more than 20 clubs and professional chapters to choose from, engineering students at U of I gain true experience and build their professional networks through club participation in design competition and technical presentations. 

 

Our U of I Society of Women Engineers empowers women to succeed and be recognized for their life-changing contributions and achievements as engineers and leaders. 

 

Our U of I Clean Snowmobile Challenge Team competes annually in the Society of Automotive Engineers International Clean Snowmobile Challenge, reengineering an existing snowmobile to improve emissions, noise and fuel economy. The team has competed in the challenge for the last 16 years and has accumulated more than 50 awards. 

 

Kenneth V. Noren Endowed Scholarship

 

Kenneth V. Noren was a professor in the College of Engineering Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. A first-generation college student himself, Noren was known for his ability to make complicated concepts easy to understand while being a mentor who expected great things from his students. 

 

Your gift supports this annual award to a full-time electrical engineering student with consideration given toward financial need and academic success. 

 

Thank you for playing!
