The Computer Engineering for Good program redefines “solution” by focusing on the ways computers and engineering can be applied to address the disparity. Students will go through the process of analyzing real-world problems specifically using developing world technologies and then use Computer and Electrical engineering skills to implement a viable innovative “solution” that can ensure sustainability. During the program, students will have lessons on aspects of design conception all the way through implementation.


Computer Engineering for Good focuses students on engineering "embedded systems" applications that support societal goals around sustainability, climate change and global public health. Students will learn to use ideas from robotics, remote sensing, AI, computational analytics, cloud computing, engineering design and wireless communications to gather, transmit and process critical information. By creating their own internet-connected devices on various microcontroller platforms (Arduino, Raspberry Pi) participants will learn how to think critically to implement an efficient solution to social challenges that consider everything from size, cost, power consumption and more.

I love that the program talks about engineering and how to build a smart city. I also love the diverse topics because most programs only talk about coding, but only gives a brief version of it with not a lot of facts."
