Join Enabling Engineering!

Would you like to use your engineering skills to make a difference in a disabled person's life?  Would you like to get technical design experience while connecting with students and faculty?  If so, please consider joining the Enabling Engineering Student Group.

Enabling Engineering is a student group that designs and builds low-cost 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.  In 2017, more than 100 students worked on 23 design projects.

By giving students the opportunity to participate in Enabling Engineering projects, we are training the next generation of engineers and clinicians to be knowledgeable about, and aware of, the needs of individuals with disabilities. 

To get involved, please fill out the following form.  You'll be added to our database of interested students and we will use this information to add students to project teams that need members:
