Our faculty members are determined to educate the best mechanical engineers in the business. You can make a difference by backing our research, helping us build and equip advanced laboratories, and funding student scholarships. 

Building Relationships, Shaping the Future

Please consider:

  • Partnering with students on their year-long senior design projects. Industry sponsors can support a team of seniors to help them conceptualize, design, analyze, build, test, and report on an engineering problem that benefits the sponsor.

  • Funding scholarships and financial aid for students, including those in the Mason-NOVA ADVANCE program.

  • Supporting students' travel to conferences and national design competitions.

  • Covering the cost of our students' first step in their journey to professional certification by paying for the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam.

  • Offering students internships and learning opportunities outside the classroom.

  • Equipping instructional labs and senior design space, including a new mechatronics lab.

  • Mentoring a student.

  • Sponsoring a lecture series or other event during Engineers Week.

  • Supporting faculty research.

If you want to make a bigger impact or honor someone special, consider a naming opportunity for our thermal fluids lab, teaching studio, or senior design space at the Science and Technology Campus.
