Michigan Online Giving:
How to Give
The College of Engineering created a video to thank the countless
donors, both large and small, that have contributed to making Michigan a
world-class research and educational institution.
This video showcases some of the research that happens here in EECS.
You'll see students working in the new Lurie Nanofabrication Facility,
which supports a significant portion of the research in the Solid-State
Electronics Laboratory. Students are conducting antenna pattern and
radar system evaluations in the Anechoic Chamber. You'll see evidence of
the significant robotics research being conducted here, chip design and
VLSI, solar cells and solid-state lighting, and work in integrated
microsystems. The backdrop for the announcer is the Computer Science and
Engineering Building (dedicated in 2005), the central hub for all
activities in computer science.
Thank you Michigan Alumni and generous donors for passing on your
gifts to the next generation. We couldn't do it without YOU – GO
The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science has a long and
distinguished history, graduating individuals who have truly transformed the
society in which we live. Alumni who have graduated from EECS programs include Claude E.
Shannon (Father of Information Theory), Larry Page (co-founder of Google), Bill
Joy (co-founder of Sun Microsystems), Lee Boysel (inventor of the first
single-chip CPU microprocessor), and Tony Fadell (creator of the iPod). Countless others have gone on to change their portions of the world, and are
improving the technology that improves lives. To date, approximately 20,000 U-M
alumni have received their degree from an EECS discipline.
Your gift will help ensure a
continued legacy of excellence as today's students become ever more aware of
their responsibility to improve the world through their education, ingenuity,
Become an important part of the EECS family and legacy by contributing
financially, and/or offering your talents.
