EPICS Expo Showcases Student Humanitarian Projects
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.
