The Michigan Engineering Fund – Sustainability (320063) supports projects targeted towards addressing global challenges such as clean water and the development of sustainable energy sources. Some examples of current and past projects include:
- Water systems
- Atmospheric, planetary and space sciences engineering
- Capabilities to measure atmospheric constituents on Earth and other planets
- Modeling space and atmospheric systems
- Resilient interdependent systems engineering
- Human-infrastructure interfaces
- Innovative global education
In one minute, U-M scientists can convert algae into biocrude — a process that takes decades in nature. With the advancement of this technology, Chemical Engineering Professor Phil Savage hopes that humans will be able to grow and harvest our own energy sources rather than using the current hunter gatherer method of drilling.
The Scholarships Fund supports undergraduate scholarships in Michigan Engineering. Most aid for students from this fund is in the form of tuition.
