Sparking Technological Innovation in Michigan, and for the World

“American ingenuity” was the phrase that defined our nation in the 20th century, when Michigan became the hub of economic development fueled by technological innovation. The Michigan State University College of Engineering helped power the rise of our state by engaging in research that resulted in practical solutions to our most pressing challenges while educating problem solvers for the future. Today, we are committed to being the catalyst for Michigan’s growth as an international center of technological innovation.


The College of Engineering seeks to raise $80.0 million in the Empower Extraordinary campaign. We will achieve this goal with a mix of endowment and annual funds.


To date we have raised $103.2 million, but more private support is needed to achieve our full potential and propel this great university forward.

“Technology is at the core of how we experience life in the 21st century and the transformational changes in the world have happened at a rapid pace, especially in recent decades. Our job is not just to prepare students to ride the wave of change, but to actually cause that wave to occur.”

Leo Kempel, Dean
