We have more than 18,000 graduates living throughout the world, and each one of you is an important member of our College family. We're proud of your accomplishments and hope that you will stay involved - by giving our students a tour of your company, providing internships, hiring our graduates, or making a contribution to our programs.


A State of Minds Comprehensive Campaign

More than 125 years have passed since engineering was added to the curriculum at WVU, and there is little that an engineer of 1887 would recognize in our technology-driven, high-velocity, global environment. The basics still apply, of course: forces, physics, and energy. And engineers are a forward-looking bunch-show them something that works better than what they know, and even if they were hard-pressed to imagine it, they will still adopt it, adapt it, understand it, and make it work even better than better.

Give

State support for higher education has decreased everywhere, and West Virginia is no exception. Only a fraction of the cost of a WVU education is supported by the state. The rest comes from tuition, research funding, and private support from alumni and friends.

We are committed to keeping tuition as affordable as possible so that future generations will have access to quality higher education. Therefore, we are extremely grateful to our alumni and friends who provide us with financial support to assist in this effort.

When you make a gift to our College (in any amount, large or small) you are contributing to the education of future generations and to the betterment of our state, nation, and world.
