Support Electrical and Computer Engineering

Together, We Will Make a Difference

Join us in tackling global challenges to improve lives and shape a better world. Your support creates greater access and opportunity for students, fosters excellence in education, and fuels innovation.

Honor a Legendary Teacher, Support the Future of Engineering

Professor Budak transformed the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and shaped three generations of successful engineers. His impact would not have been possible without the support of his wife, Helga, who helped him behind the scenes, from typing and proofreading his textbooks to entertaining students at their home. 

To recognize the contributions of both Aram and Helga, we have established the Aram and Helga Budak ECE Endowed College Professorship. Once fully funded, the endowed college professorship will foster excellence in teaching in the department, while honoring the Budaks’ legacy for years to come. 

Enhance the Educational Experience

Gifts to the ECE Opportunity Fund allow us to pursue revolutionary ideas that enhance our students’ learning experience

Support Creativity and Innovation

Gifts to the ECE Student Projects Fund provide support for our senior design program and hands-on projects throughout the curriculum

Awesome Alumni Duos Committed to Advancing Engineering Education

Lisa (B.S. ’84) and Desi (B.S. ’83, M.S. ’84) Rhoden

From supporting student scholarships to establishing our first-ever university professorship in their name, the Rhodens' support of ECE is unprecedented

Susan (B.S. ’88) and Randy Benzel (B.S. ’88)

The Benzels – who first met as sophomores in electrical engineering – created a scholarship to make higher education more accessible and affordable for ECE students

Carmen Menoni (Ph.D. ’87) and Jorge Rocca (Ph.D. ’83)

In addition to their contributions as University Distinguished Professors at CSU, Menoni and Rocca give back to ECE through their gifts to scholarships, labs, and the Opportunity Fund.

Donation from lifelong educator enabling cutting-edge research and education

Bharti Temkin, lifelong educator and accomplished mathematician, has made an $80,000 gift in honor of her late husband Henryk Temkin, a former professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Colorado State University.

The donation establishes the Henryk and Bharti Temkin fund in honor of Henryk Temkin, a Rockwell-Anderson Professor of Electrical Engineering at CSU from 1992 to 1996.

The gift will provide support for laser and photonics research and education led by University Distinguished Professor Carmen Menoni, who leads fundamental advancements in the science of transparent amorphous materials and their applications to laser science and technology.

Adjunct Professor Learned First-Hand the Value of Donor Support

"It didn't take me long to notice that many students had financial concerns. With the challenging nature of electrical and computer engineering coursework, Marcia and I decided to help."
Bill Eads
ECE adjunct professor and retired engineer

Bill and Marcia Eads established the Eads Family Scholarship to help alleviate the financial challenges some students face. The renewable scholarship provides support for students from their freshman to senior year.
