Aerospace Engineering Excellence Fund

This year, we gained more space in our building. This is a wonderful opportunity to accommodate our growing department but also a challenge as we need to renovate the spaces we inherited. Your gift today will fund upgrades to our computer labs, directly supporting students.

As the new department head, I would like to focus on giving students the best chance to succeed in their professions by providing them with the best labs and working spaces to learn from and to work at. I would like the years students spend in the aerospace engineering department to become some of the most memorable in their lives.

Undergraduate Scholarships

The need for undergraduate student support never ceases. In addition to giving students the extra money and time they need to excel in their studies, scholarship programs help the university recruit top students. The criteria for recipient selection may be designated by donors, and your generous contribution will provide an annual award that will be directed to a worthy aerospace undergraduate student.

Graduate Fellowships

Endowed Fellowships help to encourage more undergraduate students to pursue advanced degrees. Top quality graduate students are important to faculty recruiting, our research program, and the future of engineering education. The endowed funds generate annual income which will be used to attract and retain quality graduate students in the department.
