Building Relationships, Shaping the Future

Please consider:

  • Partnering with students on their year-long senior design projects. Industry sponsors can support a team of seniors to help them conceptualize, design, analyze, build, test, and report on an engineering problem that benefits the sponsor.
  • Funding scholarships and financial aid for students, including those in the Mason-NOVA ADVANCE program.
  • Supporting students travel to conferences and national design competitions.
  • Covering the cost of our students' first step in their journey to professional certification by paying for the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam.
  • Offering students internships and learning opportunities outside the classroom.
  • Equipping instructional labs and senior design space, including a new mechatronics lab.
  • Mentoring a student.
  • Sponsoring a lecture series or other event during Engineers Week.
  • Supporting faculty research.

If you want to make a bigger impact or honor someone special, consider a naming opportunity for our thermal fluids lab, teaching studio, or senior design space at the Science and Technology Campus.
