Assistive Technology Program
The Assistive Technology Program began in 1991. Its roots are in the senior project courses and the need to provide seniors with sources of motivation beyond the norm. As students were introduced to the problems of disadvantaged persons, it became very obvious that we had found our source of motivation for our students. Today, the main purpose of the assistive technology program is to provide engineering students with interesting and challenging problems that may be resolved by applying technologies learned through their studies. Professor Donn Clark, the founder of the program, received the 2002 President's Award for Public Service.
