There are many ways you can make a meaningful investment in Mechanical Engineering at Berkeley, and advance our mission of creating knowledge, educating leaders and serving society. However you choose to support the department, your gift — of any size — will make a significant impact. You can opt for a giving method that perfectly suits your interest and level of giving:
To continue the promise, possibilities, and excellence of the world-renowned Mechanical Engineering Department, a strategic renewal plan has been designed to maintain Etcheverry Hall's vitality in the 21st century. The plan will modernize classrooms and integrate up-to-date teaching technologies. Laboratories will be enhanced to promote interdisciplinary exchange that will speed the development of new solutions.
This fund provides vital support for the department's world-class instructional and research programs, and for other high-priority strategic initiatives as determined by the chair of the department.
This fund is an endowment, the payout of which supports high-achieving graduate students in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Preference is given to those studying material behavior and the application of material behavior to design.
As a tribute to Professor Emeritus John Wehausen, friends and colleagues have started a fund-raising effort to establish a John Wehausen Memorial Scholarship at Berkeley for graduate students interested in Wehausen's areas: marine fluid mechanics, surface waves, ship hydrodynamics.
Thank you for your consideration, and we appreciate your support!
