Giving Opportunities

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) provides an exceptional educational experience for students and fosters innovative research that will impact the state, the nation, and the world.

Now, more than ever, private support of teaching and research within ECE will be key to launching the department to the next level of excellence. Support at all levels makes a difference and there are many meaningful ways to make a gift.

Opportunities for Support

  • The Hartig Fund provides general, unrestricted support to the department.
  • ECE Scholarship Awards supports scholarships in electrical and computer engineering
  • Endowed chairs, professorships, scholarships, and fellowships are the core building blocks for the department’s future. Make a gift to a current fund, or create your own.
  • Estate Gifts allow you to create a lasting legacy. We offer many ways to make such a provision. Among the easiest is to place a bequest to the department in your will. Such a gift does not deplete needed income for living expenses, and often allows you to make a more financially significant gift than would have been possible during life.

We appreciate your partnership and continued support of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. It has meant a great deal for our students. Here’s what some of our recent recipients have to say.
