School of Engineering

students holding one million dollar sign

WIU-Quad Cities students help announce the $1 million lead gift from The John Deere Foundation and The Moline Foundation for facilities and equipment for the engineering program in 2009.

Thanking Our Donors

Over the last three years, many generous corporations, foundations, and individuals have given the engineering program nearly $1.2 million for facilities and equipment and $79,000 for scholarships. These donors have helped the engineering program to offer the academic programs and lab facilities that brought full accreditation to the engineering program in September 2012. We thank these partners for their on-going support and advocacy as WIU's School of Engineering enters its next stages of growth.
