Thank you for choosing to support the J.B. Speed School of Engineering! Today we are asking you to fund the following areas: Speed School Scholarships, Speed School Student Competitive Teams, Diversity Initiatives, or the Dean’s Immediate Impact fund.    

The Speed School is a special place where we cultivate world-class engineers who are well prepared to meet the challenges of tomorrow with competitive critical thinking and problem-solving skills. A place for ideas that will transform and reimagine our world, our students are both dreamers and doers. It takes hard-working students, staff, faculty, and alumni to bring these ideas to life in an impactful way – to help people grow, build our communities, and create new opportunities for others.
