2020 – The NYUAD Engineering Ethics course connects with the Engineers for Social Impact program to develop a broad range of analytical and systematic thinking skills in students as they work with communities and consider the home-grown assets that can lead to innovation.
A group of NYUAD Engineeing students had planned to work with communities to both build physical structures through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity as well as develop a deeper understanding of the assets, opportunities and challenges standing before the community that could lead to locally-sustainable innovations. However, as the work with the communities was scheduled for March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic effectively put a stop on this portion of the course from 2020 – 2022.
