The Center for Socially Engaged Engineering and Design (C-SED) provides myriad opportunities for students, faculty, and partners to utilize our resources. Students of all disciplines can learn new approaches to design and earn credits, while instructors can leverage our materials and other offerings to incorporate more socially engaged instruction into their coursework. C-SED welcomes community, industry, and government partners to explore future projects with us.


We provide students the necessary space and tools to think more critically about design — whether you’re in a course, working solo, on a co-curricular team. Let’s explore your ideas.
