Engineering Priorities

Your support is critically important to advancing our momentum and fulfilling our commitment to developing new programs and providing top-notch experiential learning opportunities for our students. Please consider the impact your financial support, at any level, could have on one of the following engineering programs or scholarships, especially when combined with a potential matching gift from your employer.



Chemical engineering students design and build a box-sized car that uses chemical reactions to run and stop. In 2013, a University of New Haven team placed second in the Northeast Regional competition and competed in the nationals in San Francisco.


Engineers Without Borders

Students in the University of New Haven Engineers Without Borders chapter are planning, designing and building a water treatment system that will provide clean drinking water for a village in Ecuador.


Supermileage Vehicle

Mechanical engineering students are building a "super" fuel-efficient vehicle that competes at a national contest organized by the Society of Automotive Engineers in Michigan each year. The University of New Haven team placed 10th in 2013.


Concrete Canoe


Robotics Club

Electrical and computer engineering students design and build a variety of robots for competitions. The University of New Haven team won second place in the 2010 ION Robotic Lawnmower Competition. Bartending and firefighting robots are being built in 2013–14.


Engineering & Science University Magnet School

University of New Haven students host visits, provide mentoring and tutoring, and University of New Haven faculty conduct summer camps for grade 6-12 students from the New Haven Engineering and Science University Magnet School.


Automation Club

This club focuses on "Learning by Doing." Multidisciplinary projects include PLCs, machine vision, manufacturing processes, human-machine Interface and pneumatics.


Programming Club

Computer Science and Information Technology students compete in regional programming competitions.


Tagliatela College of Engineering Emergency Scholarship Fund

Emergency financial support ensures that Tagliatela College of Engineering students who face a sudden emergency have the resources to complete their degrees.


Engineering Equipment Fund

For the purchase of new equipment for the Tagliatela College of Engineering.
