Invest In ECE

The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering is grateful for the financial support of alumni, companies/organizations, and other donors, which allow us to make a difference in the programs and instruction we provide for our students and faculty.

There are numerous ways you can help support the ECE Department, including the following. If you are interested in providing a donation or for more information, please contact the University of Nebraska Foundation.

Priority Funding Needs
Creating your own fund is the ultimate way to make a difference and will enable the department to stay on top of the constantly changing field of ECE and provide the best possible education for future engineers and community leaders. Your support enables the department to enhance students' experiences through relevant and challenging educational programs, leading edge research and the transfer of knowledge, which helps prepare competent and intelligent graduates who are ready for the fast-paced challenges of a career in electrical and computer engineering. 

Program Development Support Fund 
Creating a dynamic department atmosphere that promotes learning, research, recruitment and business partnerships is another priority within the ECE Department. Support is needed for facility upgrades including laboratories, student and faculty meeting rooms and department common areas. Private support is increasingly critical in providing the department with the financial resources necessary to create new facilities and maintain existing spaces. Your gifts enable the department to provide an optimal learning environment.

Student Activities and Enhancements Fund 
Support for student-selected activities, such as field trips to visit industries and job fairs and trips to attend competitions and workshops/conferences, enables our students to gain outside experiences and valuable contacts.

Scholarships and Fellowships

  • Undergraduate Scholarships: Lots of gifted young people dream of going to college, but not everyone has the financial resources to make that dream a reality. That's where scholarships come in. A gift supporting undergraduate scholarships supports aspiring engineers within the department by increasing financial aid opportunities for deserving students. With the help of scholarships, students not only realize the dream of higher education, they discover their boundless potential.
  • Graduate Fellowships: Whether collaborating with faculty on research or teaching and mentoring undergraduates, graduate students are crucial to the strength and integrity of the university. The advances these students make in electrical and computer engineering while at the university greatly enhance its reputation as a leader in education and scientific research. Private support for graduate fellowships ensures that Nebraska Engineering will continue to attract top graduate students.
