Engineering reaches $50 million goal

The School of Engineering and Applied Science has met its campaign goal of $50 million a year ahead of schedule and nine months after boosting its original goal from $37.5 million.

Recent gifts have enabled the Engineering School to strengthen its program in a number of ways, including the establishment of two distinguished professorships. Contributions also will provide more scholarship support to undergraduate students. In particular, the school plans to expand the financial component of the Rodman Scholars program, an honors program for exceptional students.

"This $50 million allows us to meet basic needs that were identified in the early 1990s," said Engineering School dean Richard W. Miksad. "But the world keeps changing. ... So we will continue to work with alumni, faculty, corporate partners and others to pursue excellence in our focus areas and throughout the school."
