Support Our Future

Alumni and Friends Department Support Fund

The department is aiming to launch into the future with the help of generous donations. These gifts are unrestricted, which means they provide the department with flexibility to support current priorities and respond to emerging opportunities that other funds do not cover. Every donation, regardless of the amount, is significant and greatly appreciated.

Curriculum Development Fund

Supporting this initiative will help prepare our students with knowledge and critical skills in big data, data analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to use alongside fundamental tools in solving engineering design problems.

Student Scholarships Fund

Your contribution to the department’s Scholarships Fund empowers promising undergraduate and graduate students, turning the dream of a college education into a tangible reality.

Faculty Development Fund

At Michigan Tech, we compete for the same talented faculty along with all the top universities in the nation. Your gift will provide state-of-the-art equipment and additional support to new faculty—enabling them to become leaders in their field, attract the best graduate students, and inspire our undergraduate students. By supporting the education of our next generation of engineers, your contribution is certain to help change many lives for the better.

William “Bill” Predebon Legacy Fund

This fund honors Dr. Predebon’s outstanding contributions to the ME-EM department. With a quarter century as department chair and nearly a half century of dedicated service until his retirement in July 2022, Bill’s impact as a scholar, teacher, and leader is unparalleled. Established in the spirit of his extraordinary achievements, the fund aims to support and advance our ongoing initiatives and will perpetuate Bill’s legacy by sustaining the department’s impactful work.
