EPICS Expo Showcases Student Humanitarian Projects

On March 4, students from Santa Clara University and San Jose State University showed off their humanitarian engineering projects at the IEEE EPICS Expo, held at SCU.

Students from Santa Clara University and San Jose State University showcased their engineering projects created to solve environmental and social problems in Silicon Valley—and beyond at the second annual Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) Expo earlier this year.

During the Expo, students networked with corporate and nonprofit representatives, and participants presented student-led, technological solutions-based projects. SCU presented 12 posters and 4 business pitches. The Frugal Innovation Hub and SJSU were both awarded $10,000 from the EPICS in IEEE program to continue their work on humanitarian-based projects and each received a certificate of special Congressional Recognition from Rep. Ro Khanna.

The EPICS Expo is a collaboration between Santa Clara University’s Frugal Innovation Hub, SJSU’s EPICS program, and EPICS in IEEE. Find a full report on the event here.
