College of Engineering


Applied learning is a hallmark of Wichita State, and in the College of Engineering, students get hands-on experience in the classroom, in dozens of laboratories across the campus, and on the job through robust co-op and internship programs.  

The College of Engineering Shocker Fund helps make these experiences possible by providing unrestricted support to the areas of greatest need. That includes covering attendance fees for national conferences and funding faculty on-boarding expenses to help improve the faculty-to-student ratio within the college.  

Another great way to support the college is by supporting the College of Engineering need-based scholarships. Far more students apply for financial aid each year than WSU has resources to help. This fund will help us reach more students. 

Your support makes a difference!

Because of you

Your gift to the Shocker Fund provides flexible resources to meet the changing needs of WSU students. More students will have access to programs that enhance their college experience, such as tutoring, study abroad, applied learning conferences and competitions, and community service opportunities.

Last year, College of Engineering students received $84,399 from nearly 500 individual gifts. So far this year, students have received $56,990. With your help, we can beat the previous total and more of our students will receive the critical support they need to succeed. Make your gift to the College of Engineering Shocker Fund today.
