Create a Legacy

Name Your own ECE Professorship

Our faculty are the backbone of the department. They are teachers, mentors, researchers, entrepreneurs, and managers. They bring the latest technology to the classroom, they raise funds to conduct their research, they invite undergraduate students into their research groups to help them experience the thrill of cutting-edge research, and with their graduate students are boldly leading in technological and scientific territory.

Contact us to talk about setting up a professorship in the name of your choice. 

Name Your Own Endowed Fund

The global demand for engineers is increasing. In order to address this demand, ECE is focused on educating the engineering leaders of tomorrow. To continue to create a pool of exceptional engineering students, we must attract, enroll, and educate a highly qualified, diverse student body. ECE students are trained on industry-standard equipment and software, in state-of-the-art labs with limited enrollment so everyone gets that critical hands-on experience. Graduate students have often left high-paying jobs to pursue a more creative future through an advanced degree.

An essential component to the recruitment and retention of the best and brightest is adequate funding, which allows students to make the most of their Michigan Engineering education. Endowed funds also help us to fund student groups, student awards, and student activities.

It is often our young faculty that blaze new trails and pave the way for wide-ranging applications from single discoveries.
