In the Community

A Helping Hand

UMass Lowell students have joined together across majors to design, build and donate prosthetic devices for children.

eNABLE Lowell is a local chapter of a global nonprofit volunteer organization that provides 3D printed prosthetic devices to children around the world.

Whether it is getting kids interested in sciences, assisting teachers with engineering curricula, creating new technologies to help people with disabilities or traveling to Peru to bring electricity to a village, the College of Engineering reaches out to the community in many ways.
