Giving

When you give to the Cockrell School of Engineering, you become a stakeholder in every success, discovery and innovation developed by our faculty and students. Your gifts support teaching and research and help the Cockrell School change the people who will change the world in areas ranging from health to energy to infrastructure. Join us in our vision today by a making an investment in the Cockrell School’s people, programs or facilities. You can give through the Friends of Alec Engineering Annual Fund or establish an endowed graduate fellowship, an undergraduate scholarship, you can support faculty, academic programs and research, or help improve our engineering facilities.

The creation of endowments - gifts invested permanently, with annual distributions supporting the donor's purpose for making the gift - are an important emphasis of our priorities and offer a permanence to the donor's engineering education commitment.

The Cockrell School’s $350 million fundraising goal is part of the university-wide Campaign for Texas which seeks to raise $3 billion by August 31, 2014. Engineering's funding objectives were developed by the Cockrell School Dean and the School’s seven department chairs, who aim to create a “disciplined culture of excellence” over the next two decades.  Donors who direct their philanthropy to the Cockrell School of Engineering automatically participate in the University’s campaign.

Identified below are the Cockrell School’s financial goals:

Graduate Student Support $135 million
Facilities and Infrastructure Improvement $120 million
Research and Academic Programs $50 million
Faculty Support $45 million
