The vision for the Case School of Engineering

In today’s fast-paced, technology-driven culture, the Case School of Engineering continues to build a national reputation for distinctive education and interdisciplinary approaches that meet some of the greatest challenges of our time. Among these initiatives are cutting-edge efforts in energy, human health and advanced materials. Campaign support will grow the school’s undergraduate and graduate programs, build on research strengths and expand global outreach.

Campaign Goal $170 million

Undergraduate Education
The engineering school’s undergraduates—representing about one-third of the university’s total undergraduate enrollment—are entrepreneurial and ambitious. These future leaders—winners of national honors, awards and competitions—are of the highest caliber and are engaged not only in their education but also in their personal and professional development. To continue to attract and retain such promising students, the school must offer competitive scholarships, innovative courses and new educational opportunities.

Graduate and Professional Education
The quality of the school’s graduate programs is critical to its national and international reputation. As graduate students continue to learn from faculty and conduct their own innovative research, they face unique challenges: They need tuition and stipend support, access to faculty mentors and state-of-the-art infrastructure. To enrich and advance graduate education, the school needs philanthropic support for fellowships, program enhancements and capital improvements.

Strategic Hiring
The Case School of Engineering is committed to recruiting professors from all ranks to work alongside current outstanding faculty, advancing the school’s research thrusts in advanced materials, energy and human health. By focusing on diversity, particularly with regard to women and underrepresented minorities, this initiative will help cultivate a learning environment that reflects society. Philanthropic support will allow the school to leverage the university’s financial commitment, bolstering these areas of research and garnering new recognition.

“The philanthropic support of our alumni and friends is more critical than ever. For the Case School of Engineering to meet the complex technological and economic issues and opportunities facing our region, nation and world, we must have the means to nurture innovative thinkers—students and faculty who know how to work with others in and beyond the traditional world of engineering.”
