EPICS in IEEE SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE AN EPIC DIFFERENCE
EPICS in IEEE provides these solutions by deploying teams of students, faculty and technology professionals to partner with local nongovernmental organizations and community members-facilitating learning and innovation at all levels and in all directions while addressing significant human needs.
At the same time, EPICS in IEEE provides NGO’s and community members with immediate new capacity upon which long-term system innovation – from schools to healthcare solutions to entrepreneurial activity – can be built.
Connecting Engineering to Community Service
Solving community challenges through the power of technology and education, EPICS (Engineering Projects in Community Service) gives students a platform to work with engineering professionals to develop solutions that transform communities across the globe. We are committed to fulfilling the IEEE core purpose of fostering technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.
Preparing the Next Generation of Engineers
Technology can change the world, but it takes people working together, using skills such as communication, collaboration, and creativity to apply technical solutions to community challenges.
Unfortunately, engineering students don’t have enough opportunities to foster those critical professional skills in real-world settings before entering the workforce.
That’s why EPICS champions a unique, service-learning approach to engineering education that focuses on hands-on experience and holistic skill development. Students collaborate with IEEE engineering professionals on community enhancement projects to design, build, and deploy sustainable solutions. In the process, they develop highly sought-after skills such as project management, leadership, teamwork, communication, and decision-making.
The result is young engineers well-equipped for the workforce and a community transformed by the power of technology.
