Giving Opportunities

When you give to the Faculty of Engineering you have the option of giving to an area of your choice. Below are some of our current priority areas and information on other giving opportunities.

Engineering our Next Generation (ENG) Endowment Fund

The Engineering Our Next Generation fund – or the ENG Fund – is the beginning of something truly special at the Faculty of Engineering. It is a single, large-scale endowment fund that creates life-changing opportunities for our undergraduate students now and forever. It supports beyond the classroom experiences and invests in the leaders and problem solvers who will build our future. The ENG Fund ensures the faculty is ready to help our students seize exciting opportunities as they arise, and has the flexibility to support different student projects and initiatives from year to year. The only thing that doesn't change is its 'big impact' results.
