College of Engineering 2021

Since the earliest days of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have responded with pace—and with purpose—to the rapidly changing environment. Engineers have made a world of difference by performing research and engaging in projects that proved vital in the fight against COVID-19. They exemplified the problem-solving spirit and dedication to the public good that are the hallmark of the engineering professions. Our continued success relies on all members of the university community working together—please demonstrate your commitment by making a gift today to the College of Engineering.


The opening of the William N. Pennington Engineering Building has enhanced our ability to achieve world-leading research that improves lives, while bolstering Nevada’s workforce. The new building is essential for the College to respond to the rising demand for a Nevada engineering education and enables us to serve more students and facilitates research that otherwise is not possible in the state of Nevada. Please consider making a gift to the college to further strengthen and elevate the student experience and keep this remarkable momentum going.


We are proud of the achievements from the College of Engineering, and we ask you to support the College of Engineering to ensure our students and faculty continue to have the ability to embrace opportunities to realize life-changing innovations.
