This year, nearly 1,800 students are pursuing the six nationally-accredited degrees (Civil, Computer, Electrical, Geomatics and Mechanical Engineering as well as Construction Management) and two graduate degrees (Civil Engineering and Engineering with options in Computer, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering) in the Lyles College of Engineering – the highest number the college has seen in 60 years.
Our graduates have made great strides globally in a variety of industries, such as aerospace, electronics, manufacturing, geo-spatial, energy, construction, infrastructure and more. They have held positions as presidents and CEOs of large corporations, astronauts, entrepreneurs, designers, construction managers, and innovators. Your gift will allow us to continue the tradition of producing successful graduates and provide learning opportunities that reach beyond the classroom.
Student Center Fund
A state-of-the-art collaboration space
The proposed Student Center at Engineering East will provide nearly 1,800 Lyles College of Engineering students with 2,000 square-feet of new, state-of-the-art collaboration space located within proximity of faculty offices, labs, and classrooms. The center’s entry will be home to a gallery of successful, innovative student projects, and will also commemorate the crew of the Space Shuttle Columbia, whose commander was Col. Rick Husband, a Fresno State engineering alumnus.
Student Research Projects Fund
Enhancing student learning and the research experience
Research experiences enhance student learning and have proven to be a high-impact learning practice. The Lyles College of Engineering Student Research Projects Fund will provide financial support to students who work closely with faculty members to conduct research and create projects in their disciplines. These extra-curricular experiences will allow students to dive deeper into their research topic and work collaboratively with other student researchers – while refining their oral and written communications skills.
Student Success Fund
Supporting our students beyond the classroom
The process of student success extends beyond the classroom and course grades. The Student Success Fund will support the development and implementation of professional and career readiness programs and workshops, co-curricular instructional programs, supplemental instruction, industry visits, and student conference participation.
On behalf of our students, faculty and staff, thank you for your consideration and support.
