Engineering for Social Good

Engineering for Social Good provides students with an introduction to core concepts in design and engineering through hands-on projects that build real-world solutions to improve the lives of people in our community. The course emphasizes human-centered design to directly address current issues in our world related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Engineering for Social Good is a project-based course that applies STEM knowledge and skills to improve our greater community. Students may take the course as a semester class or a full-year class. 

As a project-based class delivering a real-world product for the community, students will be expected to engage in a high degree of collaboration, perseverance, and flexibility to meet time-sensitive deadlines. Although the class will meet during regular class periods, students need to be willing to meet occasionally outside the normal class periods to ensure the project stays on track.

Students are required to submit an application for this course.
