Your Support helps E&S Students (and not just in the classroom)
The students in the College of Engineering & Science have numerous opportunities to apply their “book learning” knowledge first-hand. Outside programs and competitions are a major part of an E&S education. A sample of these opportunities include:
- the Mini-Baja and Micro-Baja competitions, where students design and race off-road vehicles;
- the autonomous ground vehicle competition, where students design vehicles that need no driver, but instead follow a path and avoid obstacles through sensory technology;
- and the Chem Club that enables students to provide extra-curricular programs to high school students (such as its renown “Magic Show”) and UDM students alike.
Other opportunities to grow as professionals are available in the E&S student organizations, which not only mentor incoming students, but also provide speakers and networking opportunities with industry professionals.
Alumni and friends have been generous to support student programs in the College; corporations such as the DaimlerChrysler Corporation Fund and the Ford Motor Company Fund support many of our student programs and organizations on an annual basis.
All gifts, regardless of their size, help to ensure the continuing quality of a UDM education. Private support is crucial to our ability to maintain and enhance the excellent programs that have been part of the University tradition for generations.
