Much of the College of Engineering's continuing success depends on the foresight, philanthropy, and loyalty from a flood of alumni. The college's network of living alumni numbers more than 16,000 around the globe. As valued supporters of our community, they help us ride the wave that propels our achievement.
As UMass Amherst Chancellor Kumble R.

With your help, we will continue our efforts to attract and develop the highest quality faculty and students to fortify a supportive and innovative teaching, learning, and working environment. The college is the highest ranked public engineering institution in New England – our goal is to ensure its continued ascent.”
