Engage with EPICS

Celebrate IEEE Day by Supporting EPICS in IEEE Student Teams

Through a unique, service-learning approach, EPICS (Engineering Projects in Community Service) empowers students to make a difference in local communities by developing technical solutions to challenges. In turn, students receive hands-on experience that prepares them for future careers in engineering.

However, it takes a collective effort to make that happen. Here are the ways you can engage with EPICS in IEEE.

Give a Gift to Support Student Projects

When you donate to EPICS in IEEE, your investment has a long-lasting impact on communities and the student volunteers involved in the program. Through EPICS in IEEE, students gain critical skills that help them launch successful careers. The leadership, teamwork, communication, empathy, and interpersonal skills they develop on projects prepare them for the workforce like no other program and position them for success in their future engineering discipline. Your investment helps shape the engineers of tomorrow.

Give back to your Community by Submitting a Project

Create a team to design and develop an impactful solution using engineering and technology. EPICS in IEEE funds student teams up to 10K to use the engineering design process to create solutions that help their local community in the areas of Environment, Access and Abilities, Education and Outreach, and Human Services. 

Hear from team members about their experience with an EPICS in IEEE project.

Dealing with the real problems of deploying an engineering project is for sure something you do not learn in the classroom…. all the students participating in the project are facing new real situations, which are better preparing us to the job market.


I have been able to learn how to link-up and interact with communities successfully and how to get communities to appreciate, adopt, and utilize innovative communities for their benefit. I have also been able to widen my skills base in technology, management, and human relations.


Small grants like EPICS in IEEE are an incredible resource for students and small teams. The EPICS grant helped us get off the ground, and later lent an air of legitimacy to future grant applications and publications.

Give Mentorship to Student Teams

IEEE Members can help student teams by becoming a mentor. As an industry professional by sharing your experience in technical design, professionalism, client/stakeholder relations, and/or project management, you can increase the likelihood of successful community-based project deployment. See the below resources on how to get started as an EPICS in IEEE mentor.
