Named for the great Renaissance innovator Leonardo da Vinci, the College established the da Vinci Circle in 2005 to recognize and nurture the 21st-century renaissance in science and engineering powered by discoveries in microtechnology, nanotechnology and biotechnology.
Today da Vinci Circle members number about 300 individuals and corporations. Together, their financial gifts support faculty and students working on groundbreaking research to build a better, more sustainable future for us all.

Talented and resourceful faculty advance academic programs and research in the College of Engineering. Generous da Vinci Circle members select one member of the faculty each year as a da Vinci Fellow, and recognize the awardee with a one-time grant of $10,000.
“I am very humbled to be named the da Vinci Fellow for 2015. This award will enable me to pursue bold new ideas.”
Thanks to the generosity of da Vinci Circle members, the College of Engineering awards on average 10 da Vinci scholarships each year to exceptional students.
