Other skills students will master with our class include teamwork, communication, leadership, and project planning. The Engineering Service Learning courses fulfill lower division humanities graduation requirements for all UC Merced majors. 

What is Engineering Service Learning?

We are a Class! Engineering Service Learning students work in multidisciplinary design teams to complete real-world projects for non-profit community partners. Our projects range from efforts in sustainability to helping the community. Some of our most noteworthy projects are using drones to detect illness in crops, restoring a windmill for the Vernal Pools Reserve, and igniting an interest in the sciences within Merced County schools
