Tomorrow's Pioneers Can Use Your Support Today
Your gifts directly impact the education of students who are advancing to create earth-friendly plastics, medical microdevices, cleaner sources of energy, and so much more. Monetary gifts go toward attracting world-class faculty, supporting the creation of innovative programs, maintaining advanced facilities and equipment, and funding opportunities for real-world application and experience. These elements are necessary to provide tomorrow’s chemical engineers with the tools to create a better future for all of us.
Ways to Give
ChE Undergraduate Learning Commons
New! We seek to provide an important, much-needed new space for students within the Department of Chemical Engineering, the ChE Undergraduate Learning Commons.
This new space will be dedicated to serving our undergraduates. Students can visit the ChE Learning Commons for academic advising, as well as peer advising, peer mentoring, and peer tutoring. The space will include a conference room, library, and group study areas. Additionally, the space will be utilized by a number of student organizations, including Michigan Tech’s student chapters of AIChE, Omega Chi Epsilon, TAPPI, and SME. Our ChE department Student Advisory Board will also utilize the space.
The ChE Undergraduate Learning Commons will foster the development of non-technical skills, by engaging students, involving them in their community, and providing them with greater access to a variety of volunteer and leadership roles.
The ChE Learning Commons will encourage even greater development of soft or non-technical skills in our students, including communication, leadership and teamwork.
Chemical Engineering Unit Operations Lab Endowment
The Unit Operations Lab is the only lab of its kind and size in the world used for chemical engineering education. At three stories tall and 6,500 square feet, it emulates a real-world chemical processing facility. Your generous gifts allow the department to continue to improve and maintain this exceptional facility.
Chemical Engineering Outreach
Funds designated to outreach are used to bring industry leaders to campus to speak with students and share their experiences as professional chemical engineers. Support the opportunity for students to meet mentors and make industry connections.
