Impact Your Community

Engineering is how we solve problems. Engineers design solutions that improve medicine and healthcare, cybersecurity, access to clean water, energy efficiency, smart technology, transportation, and more! In e4usa, you will have the opportunity to design and create solutions to real-world problems in your own community. According to Dr. Thea Pepperl (Virginia Commonwealth University), a 2021-22 university liaison, e4usa offers "a great opportunity to empower students to think through a problem and come up with a solution."

"I worked with nanophotonics and phase change materials. I would not be able to digest these difficult concepts without having learned the problem-solving approach from the e4usa class. I can apply engineering everywhere in my life meaningfully and intentionally now, with a newfound appreciation for the study. Thank you to e4usa!"
