Engineers for Social Impact (EfSI) supports and complements the mission and goals of the Engineering Division at NYUAD through a co-curricular program that emphasizes experiential learning via field work as well as the development of locally sustainable engineering designs and technologies.
The goals of Engineers for Social Impact are to:
- Immerse students in a culture that promotes invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship through an experiential learning process rooted in the global community.
- Build a forum for developing and sharing ideas and knowledge towards creating sustainable technological solutions that improve the lives of end users in the Bottom of the Pyramid socio-economic groups.
- Serve as a platform for exploring technology entrepreneurship models for social impact that are economically self-sustainable.
- Create long-term partnerships with corporations, non-governmental organizations, and government agencies to provide students with experiential opportunities as well as pathways for future engagements.
