15 Years of Impact

Founded at IEEE in 2009, the EPICS in IEEE program is celebrating 15 years of making an impact in communities and students around the world. EPICS in IEEE invites you to participate in our celebration of 15 years through the following activities.

  • Launch at the Rising Stars Event- January 2024
  • 3-Virtual Event Series on the Past, Present, and Future of EPICS in IEEE throughout the year
  • Stories on past and current student teams and the impact of their projects in their communities
  • Raising funds to support 15 future EPICS in IEEE projects

We hope that you help us celebrate this milestone and help the EPICS In IEEE program thrive for the next 15 years!

Join Our Virtual Event

EPICS in IEEE has played a key role in expanding the global reach of projects in which engineering students bring their learning and skills to bear in addressing challenges faced by their local communities.

By tackling community needs in the areas of access and abilities, education and outreach, human services, and the environment, students participating in EPICS in IEEE are gaining firsthand experience in marrying engineering and community. Project by project, they are contributing to IEEE’s goal of advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.
