Name of Engagement
College of Integrated Science and Engineering
Much of this work is project-based, with CISE students under faculty guidance working to solve problems of importance in our community. A great example of this is the Engineering program’s sophomore design project, which features Engineering students working to design and build specialized human-powered vehicles for a real-world client with physical challenges. In Geographic Science, students have worked with Keister Elementary school to create a garden for the school, while others have used geographic information systems (GIS) technology to help animal shelters reduce the number of animals that they need to euthanize. The Virginia Wind Energy Center provides a variety of wind-energy-related outreach assistance to local and regional community members.
