Future Foundations

The materials discipline is at the foundation of almost every major advance, regardless of the industry, and your gifts directly impact the education of students who are going to making these advances. From revolutionizing computer components to nano water-filtration, a materials engineer is at its foundation.

Monetary gifts help students by attracting world-class faculty, supporting the creation of new and innovative programs, maintaining advanced facilities and equipment, and funding opportunities for real-world application and experience. All of these elements are necessary to provide tomorrow’s material engineers with the tools to create a better future for all of us.

Ways to Give
