Ensure the Future for Electrical & Computer Engineers

By giving to the University of Washington Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, you are making ideas become a reality. The circuit blueprints in our labs become the drones delivering medicines around the globe to those who need it most. The medical problem we identify becomes the robot delivering accurate, safe surgeries. We owe it to future generations of students to position UW ECE as not only a world-class education, but as an institution where dreaming has a powerful place. We owe it to the world to provide exceptional, creative students to address some of its most complex challenges. In order to do this, we rely on the support from our UW ECE family — individuals, foundations, associations and corporations. Ideas start here. Making them happen starts with you.
