Engineering for Global Development

This course for first semester undergraduate engineering students focuses on developing products to serve the needs of those living in low-income communities, domestically and internationally. Rather than begin with a predetermined technology, this course teaches students to be bottom-up in beginning with life circumstances and cultural issues and then using such understanding to design engineering solutions.
