The Human Side of Engineering
Mentors in the Caltech course Design for Freedom from Disability gave students Stephanie Moon and Lawrence Lee a new view of the power engineers have to benefit others.
Says co-instructor Andy Lin: "It's gratifying to see that the work I'm helping with is making a difference in students' lives and the lives of people with disabilities. At the end of the course, I get teary-eyed. I see how the students want to maximize their engineering skills to help people."
