ES 277 Humanitarian Product Design is a project-based course for engineering undergrads. Students work in small teams to address needs of people in underserved communities such as refugees, displaced people, and others who have limited resources. Projects are suggested by a senior officer at the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) who provides guidance throughout the semester. Over the course of two semesters, teams work to research, conduct experiments, and create prototypes while learning about principles of design, project management, and product development. You can see some of the projects from past semesters or learn more about taking the course.
