The following text has to be updated. — Felix Beck 2016/08/27 17:26

Engineers for Social Impact (EfSI) supports and complements the mission and goals of the Engineering Division at NYUAD through a co-curricular program that emphasizes experiential learning via field work as well as the development of locally sustainable engineering designs and technologies.

The goals of Engineers for Social Impact are to:

  • Immerse students in a culture that promotes invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship through an experiential learning process rooted in the global community.
  • Build a forum for developing and sharing ideas and knowledge towards creating sustainable technological solutions that improve the lives of end users in the Bottom of the Pyramid socio-economic groups.
  • Serve as a platform for exploring technology entrepreneurship models for social impact that are economically self-sustainable.
  • Create long-term partnerships with corporations, non-governmental organizations, and government agencies to provide students with experiential opportunities as well as pathways for future engagements.
