Founder Professor in Engineering

Founder Professorships are made possible by the Grainger Engineering Breakthroughs Initiative, the result of a $100 million investment in The Grainger College of Engineering by The Grainger Foundation. The Initiative supports multi and inter-disciplinary study and provides a springboard for groundbreaking projects by allowing the college to invest in strategic priorities including, faculty chairs and named professorships, undergraduate scholarships, facilities and infrastructure, and research support. Founder Professorships have helped the college to recruit and retain world-class faculty and contribute to our elite science and engineering program.
