Support our Mission
Our students in the Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering are World-Class Engineers in the making--but it takes a lot of hard work, to get them there. The Department makes it its mission to provide students with extraordinary opportunities, such as study abroad and other global experiences, research opportunities, and student societies.
It is a testament to Penn State's excellence that students gain such rich experiences here, and the Department wants to see that tradition of excellence continue. But many of these experiences are cost-prohibitive to the students and, increasingly, our budgets are strained. Private support from our generous alumni and friends is more crucial than ever to the next generations of Penn State mechanical and nuclear engineers.

Special Giving Opportunities
Double Your Impact: Alumni Matching Challenge
To stress the importance of alumni gifts to the Department's mission, several donors have issued a challenge that requires YOUR participation. For every dollar you contribute, the donors will match your gift, dollar-for-dollar. This matching challenge doubles the impact of your gift on our students. Your participation is more important than ever. Take this opportunity to double the impact of your contribution, and help open doors for these students' futures. Read more about the matching challenge here.
Support the E-Knowledge Commons Project
The Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering is building a student-centered space in Reber Building. The proposed E-Knowledge Commons will give students a place to work in teams within a variety of study spaces, while having easy access to technology and other resources. For more information on this project and the naming opportunities available, visit the E-Knowledge Commons website.
