Learn about the Viterbi course combining both innovation and global awareness
In the second installment of our Engineering Impact series, we discuss the 2019 Min Family Challenge, an annual social entrepreneurship challenge at Viterbi. This year the challenge takes the form of the course, Innovation in Engineering Design for Global Challenge, which is a civil engineering course open to all undergraduates. As part of the class, students work in teams to create a product that can help alleviate challenges associated with the global refugee crisis. While developing their products, students traveled to Lesbos, Greece to get to know their users and test solutions.
