MCEDC trains engineers to work in partnership with people from developing communities worldwide to create sustainable solutions to meet their basic needs.  Students interested in community service and international development through EDC have several options.

Our program is based on the fundamental principle that we are exposing engineers to human development issues within the context of the developing world and within the framework and limitations of an engineering degree program. As such, we aspire to train engineers who, upon graduation, should be able to provide technical expertise to development agencies or other firms in a manner that recognizes the various technical and professional facets of community development that lead to sustainable solutions.
