A Seemingly Simple Process

By Waleed F. As engineering major, I never expected any class that would even remotely relate to Social Change. My advisor this semester asked me how all my classes are going and I said they are going great, but later she asked what about ENME 467 (Engineering for Social Change), and I replied, “It is […]

A Rewarding Experience

By Freddy P. Engineering for Social Change is unlike any engineering class I have ever taken. It brings the human aspect to engineering, which is usually not taken in full consideration. Throughout the semester, we had remarkable speakers that talked about different relevant themes, such as renewable energy, the future of technology, water on Earth, […]

Making the Connection

By Lorenzo C. Throughout my time in the Mechanical Engineering department, I have struggled with the lack of connection most classes have with one very important thing: people. We learn about many complex concepts and the theory behind how they operate, but very rarely have I received information on the connection to the people who […]

Appreciating Impact

By Christofer B. Engineering for Social Change is a class I knew would be different, but I had no idea what to really expect. Most engineering classes have the same mantra: to make something bigger, better, faster, stronger, etc; however, this class taught me to pay more attention to the impact of everything we make. […]

Broadening View on Engineering

By Travis A. This class has been such an enriching experience for me. I did not know what to expect from this class when I enrolled in it; however, I had heard really good things about it from some peers of mine. This class broadened my views on how engineering can be used in creative […]

A Unique Experience

By Daniel B. This class has done more for me as an engineering student interested in social change, specifically through entrepreneurship, in all of my collegiate experience at this university. Normally you only get as much out of a class as you put in, but in this case your yield is far higher than what […]

Understanding Relevance

By Sarah N. “Social change” is not a phrase that usually comes up in engineering classes. Engineers are supposed to care about numbers, programming, and making things faster, stronger, and better – right? Well after this semester I can definitively say engineers need to be considering much more. Specifically, we need to be consistently conscious […]
