Batten College of Engineering & TechnologyGiving

The Frank Batten College of Engineering & Technology is built on a foundation of innovation and excellence in engineering education

We continue to develop strong academic and research programs that support new models of learning, teaching and scholarship - essential elements for inspiring dreams, training leaders, making discoveries and changing the world.

Rise to the Challenge

The Project Completion and Engineering School campaign is raising scholarship funds, assisting engineering students who are at risk of not completing their degrees, and creating impactful ways to stand up in support of academic achievement and student success at Batten.

Your support will help to ensure:


Student success in and out of the classroom is a primary focus of the college. It is paramount that students have access to personalized support services that help them achieve their academic and personal goals.


Support for study abroad, student organizations and professional development enrich the student experience and prepare graduates for successful careers.


Student design projects are the cornerstone of the ODU Engineering undergraduate experience. Funds enable students to purchase supplies, perform critical tests and move their projects beyond the design bench.


Student Success Scholarships enable us to attract and retain a talented and diverse student body.


Endowed chairs and professorships make us more competitive in attracting and retaining faculty members who are the best in their fields.


Unrestricted gifts to the Dean's Fund allow the dean to address the college's most pressing needs, strengthen ongoing student or faculty programs and respond quickly to opportunities as they arise.
