Impactful Partnerships Create Lasting Change
Partner with us to uplift communities through engineering projects
Community challenges require collaborative efforts to develop sustainable change. That’s why we partner with community organizations, universities, and local schools to facilitate service learning projects that transform communities and educate students through hands-on experiences.
Through two powerful initiatives—University Partnerships and K-12 Education Partnerships—we enable volunteers, corporations, and other organizations to engineer a brighter future in their communities.
University Partnership Initiative
Universities that partner with us receive expert guidance on incorporating the service learning model into their engineering curriculum so their students can apply innovative solutions to local challenges. We also provide infrastructure for project development and deployment as well as financial resources, faculty support, and guidance from local IEEE members.
PROGRAM IMPACT: 950+ University Students Have Participated in EPICS Projects
Delivering Hot Water to Kids Camp
Students from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, developed a sustainable, environmentally friendly hot water system for a summer camp that serves disadvantaged children.
Improving Reading of CT Scans
High school students from Baltimore, Maryland, improved interpretation of CT scans by developing a program that creates a full, unified image from a CT scan and allows the images to be 3D printed.
K-12 Partnership Initiative
The K-12 initiative promotes and improves STEM education in underserved schools by engaging students in engineering and computer-based design projects that address local community needs. The program trains teachers on how to introduce STEM topics in their classroom and provides mentorship and assistance from IEEE volunteers.
The initiative introduces engineering problem-solving concepts to students at a critical stage in their educational development, and inspires them to pursue STEM careers.
