Your support will enhance the education and lives of our students. Funding lab upgrades, student activities and research will raise the profile of UB's Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering Department.
After a thorough strategic planning process with input from students, alumni, faculty and staff, the department has identified four key areas of need: student scholarships, research, experiential learning and a general fund.
Learn more about each fund and why the department identified these areas of need below:
Scholarships and Fellowships can support tuition, research and other fees students accumulate in college. Your gift could help students visit conferences, fund research and enhance their college experience.
Both graduate and undergraduate students in the department have an opportunity to conduct research. While many of these graduate students work with advisors to secure grants, your dollars could help drive our students and faculty members further toward innovation. Research is conducted in many of the department's labs. Giving to this fund would also support upgrades in our earthquake, environmental and other labs.
The department's number one priority is to train students and provide them with a superb education. Students in the department also have the opportunity to meet professionals and tour different sites. Your donation can give students their first glimpse into the professional world.
While the department has organized specific funds, your donation is not limited to these four categories. The department also has a general fund for folks who want to support a broader range of departmental activities and enhancements. The general fund will support students in need, student awards, space upgrades and anything else at the chair or donor's discretion.
