Lending Engineering Expertise
Seven UD civil engineering students went down to Mississippi and found a nature preserve in need of restoration. Students from UD’s chapter of Chi Epsilon, a national civil engineering honor society, were able to assist with the wetlands restoration project thanks to donors like you. Students removed invasive species, established a wetland trail, planted native trees, and made structural modifications to the preserve’s observation tower, restoring what was once an overgrown quagmire to a pristine wetland.
UD's College of Engineering extends worldwide with its chapter of Engineers without Borders, a program which has helped bring water to a village in Cameroon via new wells and a solar water pump, and is now planning to build a bridge for farmers in Guatemala.
College of Engineering
With 3,100 students in six departments and a mission to advance the discovery and application of new knowledge in engineering and science and develop leaders of our technology driven society—the College of Engineering’s five strategic initiatives focus on interdisciplinary research, global outreach, innovation and entrepreneurship, graduate education, and diversity. It takes reliable, annual gifts to provide vital funding support for the outstanding faculty, students, and programs in all five initiatives.
