Enabling Engineering is a student organization that designs and builds devices to improve the lives of older adults, individuals with physical and cognitive disabilities, and the caregivers who assist them. Our projects aim to empower affected individuals by giving them greater independence, reducing medical burdens, and increasing social connectedness, at minimal cost.  

Our projects are open to students of all ages. Whether you're a fifth year who's already heard about Enabling Engineering, or a first year looking for an interesting club to join, we can use your help.  As a member of Enabling Engineering, you will get design experience, use your skills to make a difference in a disabled person's life, and connect with students and faculty from across the university.

Come to our kickoff meeting on Monday, September 18 at 6pm in 103 Churchill Hall to hear about some of last year's projects and learn how you can be a part of one this year.

Here are some group highlights from the last year:

  • Furnished our beautiful new lab space in the basement of Hayden Hall
  • Supported more than 23 projects, 12 of which were completed this year.
  • Connected project teams with 9 community partners.
  • Organized over 100 students as contributors to work on one or more design projects.
  • Hosted a Project Showcase where 19 project teams presented posters and prototypes.
