Giving Back

College of Engineering Annual Fund

Support for the Engineering Annual Fund (EAF) allows Dean Ken Lutchen to fund a variety of student-centered programs that truly make a difference in the education and experience of our students.

These programs help us produce more well-rounded "societal" engineers with a broad perspective, able to think in all dimensions of science, education, and society.

Programs supported by the EAF include:

  • Stipends and scholarships, including research fellowships and book awards
  • Student club support for extracurricular engineering opportunities
  • Innovative Student Programs such as the BU Energy Forum and Engineers without Borders
  • Distinguished Faculty Fellow Awards given to faculty who are on a clear trajectory toward exemplary leadership careers and making significant contributions to their field.

Societal Engineering Fund

This new fund, already seeded with some initial alumni gifts, is specifically designed to amplify the breadth and experience of Societal Engineers. Among other things, this fund will support new activities and guest entrepreneurs in our new Technology Innovation Concentration; students participating in our Technology Innovation Scholars program to inspire K-12 students to pursue engineering educations; design and innovation competitions in the Singh Imagineering Laboratory; our new Senior Design Project Prizes for Societal Impact; and the new Engineering Product Innovation Center (EPIC), to open later this year. Please click here to see details and a video on how this is revolutionizing engineering education.
