College launches crowdfunding projects

February 02, 2018

For one month beginning on Monday, February 5, the College of Engineering & Science is seeking your financial support to fund 4 student projects.

The projects include:

Bio-Research Student Travel Fund

Student attendance at research conferences is extremely important for their academic development and to help them gain self-confidence in their field. Being able to bridge in-class experiences with real-world scientific research will help our undergraduate researchers grow academically.  Your contributions will allow our amazing researchers to grow intellectually.

John A. McLean, Jr. Lecture Series (Chemistry)

In 2017, the Chemistry department established a permanent lecture series at Detroit Mercy to acknowledge Dr. McLean’s contributions to our department and to Chemistry in Detroit. By incorporating this event annually, our goal is to increase relationships with alumni, peers and professors, and other local universities, and to encourage undergraduates to pursue careers in STEM fields. With your donation, we can achieve this.

Student SAE Vehicle Project

The SAE Supermileage Team has been active at University of Detroit Mercy for four years. The goal of this competition is to create the most fuel-efficient vehicle, with our record being 581 mpg. The SAE Supermileage and Formula Hybrid teams are fundraising to purchase components for our vehicles. These components will help to make us competitive and fully functioning teams in the coming seasons.

Concrete Canoe

Detroit Mercy's American Society of Civil Engineers Concrete Canoe Team designs, builds and races a concrete canoe (yes, it actually floats!) annually against other schools. The competition gives Civil Engineering students the opportunity to learn how to design and test concrete, work on a large-scale project within a strict schedule, and work as part of a team.  With your tax-deductible donation, our team can purchase the materials necessary to construct this year's canoe and compete in this year's conference.
