We live and work in a world of complex technical challenges. Whether it is finding new energy sources, securing cyberspace, or providing millions with clean water, meeting these challenges requires engineers who are technically excellent, innovative, and globally agile. In the Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology at Brigham Young University, we are developing engineers equipped with the broad suite of skills needed to turn challenges into opportunities.

Our mission is to develop men and women of faith, character, and technical ability who will become outstanding leaders throughout the world. We know that excellent technical training is essential but ultimately not enough. Our world needs what BYU students offer: leadership, communication and problem-solving skills, maturity, experience working in teams, and a working knowledge of other cultures.

Over the last four decades, BYU’s engineering programs have experienced tremendous growth. To better accommodate this growth and prepare students for the future, the university is constructing a new engineering building; this is an urgent fundraising priority. Supported by world-class facilities, our programs—with an emphasis on collaboration, flexibility, and active learning—will provide generations with the education needed to succeed in an ever-changing world.

I invite you to be a part of building a better future. Your support will not just help complete a structure; it will help build opportunity, innovation, and, most importantly, tomorrow’s global leaders.
