About the Course:

Most engineering classes are geared towards engineering work in developed countries, often neglecting the challenges faced by a majority of the world’s population. In this class, students will be introduced to ways in which technology can be used to aid the underserved communities, both abroad and at home. The course is project based and each student will join an interdisciplinary student team lead by one of the course facilitators. There may be opportunities for student involvement to lead to research and travel outside of class and during the following semester and summer, for all projects are long-term. Each team will work on a project to explore and solve a real world problem. Although the course is offered in the engineering department and is technologically based, we highly encourage students from all disciplines to become involved. In the past, projects have welcomed students from all fields of engineering, public health, anthropology, business, education and more. Several of the projects include business and cultural components. For a description of the projects, email for the syllabus.
