Giving Opportunities

What kind of impact will you make?

Your gift directly impacts our student’s learning environment and our faculty’s research. And your support is critical to improving teaching spaces where our students learn, updating lab faculties where our faculty members conduct research, and renewing social spaces where both students and faculty interact outside of the classroom.

Graduate Student Support

Research funding for our faculty often requires matching funds for graduate student support. These graduate students are the future leaders of our technology economy, so it is critical for the nation, and for Cornell’s ranking, that we attract and recruit the right students to our program.

Robotics Lab

Robotics is a top priority for the future of the school. Support for our growing robotics lab will ensure our students have the resources needed to excel in this challenging interdisciplinary field.

Revitalize Office Space

Phillips Hall was built in 1955 with three floors of identically sized offices. We want to modernize the second and fourth floors, as we did the third, to be aligned on the beams of the building, yielding 200 square foot rooms that will better accommodate center administration, graduate students and TA meeting rooms for class support. The upgrades will also allow better power and HVAC upgrades and eliminate less efficient window air conditioners. Offices will be constructed with some form of window to enliven the hallways with natural lighting and activity.

Graduate Student Electronic Devices Society (EDS) Seminars and ECE Colloquium Series

These events regularly bring our faculty and students together to stay on top of developments inside and outside of our field and create a continued sense of community across the school.
