Alumni & Friends

It is difficult to quantify all the good that results from charitable giving to the department. From the numerous students that receive scholarship aid, graduate fellowships and research opportunities, to experimental equipment purchased for technological innovation, to the recruitment of excellent faculty—alumni support is a large part of an improved Delaware education.

Higher education is expensive, yet it is essential that access to new knowledge is sustained. We encourage you to make an impact with your annual contribution and support the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. The annual support provided by alumni and friends is even more important in today’s economic climate. Your gift does make a difference when combined with the support of others. Many thanks to those of you who make the department a priority amongst your charities.
