Making the world a better place
At the College of Engineering, teaching is tied to real world challenges, voices are diverse, and students graduate ready to join a global workforce. Every device or system that improves our lives came from engineers. When you support the College of Engineering, you are supporting some of the nation’s brightest students and faculty in finding innovative solutions to society’s most pressing problems and help shape the engineers of tomorrow.
Ranked among the best in the world for its teaching, research and innovation, a place where the entrepreneurial spirit reigns, and where graduate and undergraduate students alike roll up their sleeves and work alongside world-renowned faculty and industry partners from the very first day of class to graduation.
The College’s 17 undergraduate degree programs prepare some of the University of Arizona’s best students for successful careers in engineering. Nearly every undergraduate student participates in one or more internships, a senior design project or research. And, the College hosts 50+ student clubs, many of which have won numerous student and professional awards.
Strong industry ties help our students and alumni land jobs with top companies around the world. Some students go on to become astronauts, CEOs, professors, mine site managers and city administrators. Others start their own high-tech companies to create robots, computer software, wireless medical devices, and solar power systems. The infinite possibilities last a lifetime.
“Your support to the College of Engineering will provide a learning environment beyond compare. You will help our students access education, gain leadership and practical skills, and connect with professionals.”
– David W. Hahn, Craig M. Berge Dean
Design Day is a cornerstone of the College of Engineering experience. Teams of senior students collaborate on interdisciplinary, industry-sponsored projects, designing, building, and testing tools and technologies. Design Day challenges students to think boldly and creatively as they work their whole year to make their capstone project come alive.
