Becoming engaged and giving back to the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering

Generous donations from alumni and friends are instrumental in the growth and excellence of the UD ECE department, benefitting the students, faculty, and programs. Your gifts support:

  • Students – scholarships, conference travel funds, student organization activities, summer research, and study abroad.
  • Facilities & Equipment – teaching laboratories; testing and evaluation equipment; the Capstone Projects laboratory & Entrepreneurial Innovation laboratory; nanofabrication, high-performance computing, cybersecurity, information technologies and other research facilities.
  • Faculty – endowed professorships that allow UD to attract and retain world-class faculty, conference travel funds, laboratory and student researcher support.
  • Enrichment Activities – lecture series, student and faculty exchange programs, summer and winter session research and study abroad programs.

We encourage you to make an impact with an annual, significant one time, or estate planned contribution to support UD ECE. We thank those of you who make us a priority among your charities. You have my sincere thanks and my pledge that your contributions truly make a difference in the breadth and quality of the educational programs we offer the next generation of electrical and computer engineers.
