Engineering and Computer Science Excellence Fund
Gifts help Baylor Engineering and Computer Science remain on the cutting edge by providing relevant technology, research opportunities, equipment for labs and student challenges and stipends for students to attend prestigious conferences.
Engineering Endowed Scholarship
Scholarships are the lifeblood of our program. To remain competitive with our peer institutions and recruit the most qualified students, we need the ability to offer scholarships. Every gift helps deserving students pursue their dreams of a Baylor education.
Engineers with a Mission
Since 2004, teams of engineering and computer science students have traveled to Kenya, Honduras, Rwanda and Haiti to design and provide sustainable solutions, such as solar power and heating, water filtration, windmills to pump water and hydro-turbine aeration, to these developing countries.
BUV (Basic Utility Vehicle) Competition
Baylor BUV challenges engineering students to design and construct a basic utility vehicle (BUV) for developing countries and mission activities that improves durability, increases fuel-efficiency and reduces costs. Each year, the students compete in the BUV Design Competition, sponsored by the Institute of Affordable Transportation. The winning design each year will be incorporated into the current Tanzania BUV design.
SAE Baja Competition
SAE Baja includes three regional competitions that simulate real-world engineering design projects and the related challenges. Engineering students design and build an off-road vehicle that can handle the rough terrain, and then promote their vehicle. This hands-on experience is imperative to their future careers in mechanical engineering.
