Engineering In the Community

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. Working with the community gives our students the opportunity for experiential experiences.
