Fearless Ideas

Fearless Ideas: The Campaign for Maryland—the University of Maryland's most ambitious fundraising campaign to-date—will focus on elevating and expanding our mission of service, enhancing our academic distinction, and bolstering a leading-edge research enterprise that has the power to improve the lives of millions.

Fearless Ideas will fuel our continued ascent as a world-class public research university through: ​
  • Scholarships and innovative co-curricular programs for students.
  • Investments in our world-renowned faculty.
  • Support for innovative programs and capital projects.
  • Expanded research that amplifies our impact. 

The University of Maryland Department of Mechanical Engineering continues to be a nationally recognized engineering program with a successful record of integrating education, leading-edge research, and collaboration with industry partners. As a result, we are constantly striving to transform our academic and research programs and expand our instructional resources. Our ongoing success relies on the generous support we receive from alumni, friends, parents, and companies who invest in our Department.

Every gift to the Department of Mechanical Engineering represents an opportunity for our students and faculty. An opportunity for a student to finance their education through a scholarship granted from the Department of Mechanical Engineering’s Scholarship Fund. An opportunity for expanded research options through fellowships and endowments.  Support for professorships and laboratories provide opportunities for our students to work in state-of-the-art facilities with world-class faculty.

No matter how large or small, gifts of any size can create life-changing impacts for our students, faculty, and the department by providing for greater educational experiences and enrichment.

People give to Mechanical Engineering for many reasons. They give because of the positive impact the Department and University had on their lives and they wish to give back. They give because they experienced financial challenges as a student and want to assist other students facing the same challenges. They give to honor a loved one, a friend, or a special professor who touched or shaped their life at Maryland. Donors have a multitude of reasons for giving, but they are a singular force in the impact they can have and the opportunities they can create.
