University of Michigan-Dearborn has a bold goal.

It's to lead the way in engineering education and research opportunities that will prepare our students to be leaders in their field and develop the technological breakthroughs to power the industries of the future. At the center is a forward-looking vision for a new, state-of-the-art Engineering Lab Building. A building that will be more than just bricks and mortar and glass. It will actually, actively facilitate an immersive, interactive and innovative learning experience.

The new ELB will be student-focused. It will be industry-driven. And it is designed to inspire collaboration, innovation and cross-disciplinary teamwork.

With your support, the new ELB at UM-Dearborn will be one of the most significant spaces for engineering education in Southeast Michigan, transforming our campus and taking our industry partnerships to the next level.

Why Give?

There has never been a more exciting time to be part of transformational change at UM-Dearborn, the College of Engineering and Computer Science, the region and most importantly, in the lives of our students.

A new ELB will allow us to create inventive, modern educational programs where learning, research and innovations can occur—innovations that will place us on a trajectory to sustained growth and excellence for generations to come.

But this bold goal can only be achieved with the committed and generous support of alumni and friends who share our vision and who are willing to invest in the success of our students, the ingenuity of our faculty and the possibilities of our partnerships.

You can help shape the future of engineering education and research at our university and their extraordinary impact on our region and our world.

The new ELB will lead to the development of new ideas, new innovations and potential new technologies. Shared research and lab spaces will provide faculty and students opportunities to work together on cutting-edge research projects from automotive to cybersecurity to advanced manufacturing. These projects will create jobs and prepare students to solve the challenging engineering problems facing society.
