Environmental Projects 

Service-Learning Projects to Support the IEEE Initiative to Address Climate Change

IEEE recognizes that climate change is a global crisis and is committed to helping combat and mitigate the effects of climate change through pragmatic and accessible technical solutions and providing engineers and technologists with a neutral space for discussion and action —climate-change.ieee.org.

EPICS in IEEE has continued this commitment by supporting 21 environmentally-focused service-learning projects. These funded projects are addressing the environmental and climate change technological needs of their local communities. Through their projects, these students will come away with critical knowledge to help them succeed in their future engineering careers. Check out the photos below of the impactful projects that kicked off in 2024!
