The department will raise $200,000 in private giving to upgrade the 20-year-old undergraduate learning labs in Mueller Hall. To date, we’ve raised $104,000 so we are more than half way there! Once the goal is met, these funds will be matched with $50,000 from the UW’s College of Engineering to leverage everyone’s donations by 25 percent. Follow this link for more info.
The world is in the middle of a materials revolution. Materials science and engineering has transformed every aspect of modern living. Advances in engineered materials are crucial to the continued vitality of countless industries. Our department is at the heart of this revolution.
