College of Engineering & Architecture
CAMPAIGN GOAL: $125 Million
WSU’s College of Engineering and Architecture is committed to providing a high-quality engineering and architecture education for the people of our state today, while enabling groundbreaking research to help us anticipate and address critical issues facing society tomorrow.
With ongoing success in clean technologies, such as smart environments, power grid, advanced materials, and sustainable design, WSU was ranked by the CleanTech Group as among the Top 10 Clean Technology Universities in the country. Now the CEA will build on these advances to meet sustainable energy and human health challenges while continuing advanced environmental research. By focusing our efforts in these directions, we help change lives for the better.
At the same time, boosting self-sufficiency is paramount as state support for higher education decreases. Along with universities around the nation, WSU must transform the way it operates to accommodate changes in the way research and education are funded.
Public/private partnerships will enable us to attract and keep the highest quality faculty members who produce the vibrant research and excellent undergraduate and graduate education that has been our tradition. And, as the cost of education rises, public/private partnerships will be the key to providing the scholarships, graduate assistantships, and student services so critical to attracting the brightest and most capable students to our programs.
Engineers and architects are at the forefront of creating and implementing the big ideas that shape our future. That’s why WSU’s College of Engineering and Architecture has established a $125 million goal to advance solutions for sustainable design, energy, environment, and health through the Campaign for WSU. Our aspirations are high but achievable with the generous support of alumni and friends. We seek your participation as we apply our knowledge and innovation to improve the well-being of our state, nation, and world—ensuring a sustainable world for our children and grandchildren.
