Giving to Engineering Education

First-year students

First-year students in the Ideas to Innovation Learning Lab.

Give to the School of Engineering Education at Purdue, and you'll help transform the learning experience of our engineering students and foster the dynamic growth of engineering education as an academic discipline. Your contributions support student scholarships and fellowships, faculty recruitment, and educational and research opportunities across these programs and initiatives:

First-Year Engineering. It's crucial to provide today's students a curriculum based on engineering fundamentals and the development of professional skills--and to integrate that curriculum with facilities that are truly state-of-the-art. Our First-Year Engineering Program does just that.

Multidisciplinary Engineering/Interdisciplinary Engineering Studies. This program brings together disciplinary perspectives at the undergraduate level to equip students as leaders who can address complex global challenges.

Research and graduate program. Field-defining faculty and gifted doctoral students are pioneering research in engineering education and, through the graduate program, making a significant impact on the nation's science and technology agenda by establishing the next cadre of engineering leaders.

INSPIRE. The Institute for P-12 Engineering Research and Learning (INSPIRE) pursues ground-breaking research and innovative programs that show P-12 teachers how to bring engineering concepts into the pre-college classroom. Dedicated to increasing interest in engineering and diversity among engineering students, INSPIRE is ultimately about preparing a globally competitive engineering workforce.

Each gift to the School of Engineering Education makes a difference. We invite you to join us in achieving our goals by either increasing your current level of annual giving or making an outright gift, planned gift, or pledge commitment.

Outright gifts can include property and gifts-in-kind as well as cash and appreciated securities. Deferred gifts can have significant tax and estate planning benefits for you and your family. If you choose to establish an endowment, your gift will be invested in perpetuity, and the annual income it generates will be used to support the university needs you select. Every gift is important in achieving our goals, and we hope you will consider making your gift today!
