The Mike Wiegers Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is the home of biomedical, computer and electrical engineering. Biomedical engineers apply engineering principles to challenges faced by the medical and life science communities. Electrical and computer engineers are involved in the design of electrical and computer-oriented systems ranging in size from miniature microprocessors to megawatt energy conversion systems, to global audio and video communication networks.
“We are honored to support Kansas State University as it educates the next generation of engineering and technology professionals. My education was made possible through the generosity of others who created K-State programs and scholarships, and I am forever grateful. That is why Lynn and I want to pay it forward and help fund opportunities for students who otherwise might not have access to higher education. We hope our department-naming legacy gift will provide students with the best faculty and programs to enrich their studies and inspire them to become the electrical and computer engineers that Kansas technology companies need.” -- Mike Wiegers
