From Design to Deployment
Many Senior Design projects are developed for real-world clients. One such project, Omwana Thrive, designed to decrease the infant mortality rate in sub-Saharan Africa, was successfully deployed in Uganda last fall.
One of last year’s projects, Omwana Thrive—developed in the Frugal Innovation Hub and designed to help decrease the infant mortality rate in sub-Saharan Africa—was successfully deployed in Uganda last fall. While students were unable to travel due to the pandemic, FIH’s partner, Rose Academies, was able to launch the app in country, with community workers teaching mothers how to use it.
