Service Learning in Action

Our Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) course is required for both our major programs. In this course, which we offer every semester, teams of students, led by students, work on software projects for charity and nonprofit organizations. These projects typically span multiple semesters, and many of our students choose to take EPICS for more than one semester. Our alumni praise the EPICS program for the team-building and communications skills it develops. We all find deep satisfaction when the work we do helps make the world a better place.
