Tech Power: Innovating for Impact Program
The Tech Power: Innovating for Impact Program leverages undergraduate engineering students’ expertise to create assistive technology solutions for disabled veterans.
Through the Tech Power Impact Design Program, we develop solutions that improve the lives of disabled veterans. We bring together engineering college students, employee mentors, veterans organizations, and others to create and execute meaningful projects to support the veteran community. Core to our approach is to inspire future engineers to use their skills as a part of real-world projects related to their engineering education.
We partner with leading engineering programs at colleges and universities near our facilities to present students with a problem to solve for a disabled veteran who lives in the surrounding community. We work with America’s VetDogs to match disabled veteran(s) with a student team who can use their engineering skills to create innovative, custom solutions.
