The IUCEE-EPICS Partnership (Engineering Projects in Community Service) has been launched in partnership with Purdue University in 2016.
EPICS is an academic program in which teams of Purdue students partner with local not-for-profit community organizations to provide technology solutions. This is a long-term partnership, which allows for more significant projects that may take 2 or more semesters to complete. EPICS projects are intended to solve real problems, and are defined in consultation with project partners from not-for-profit community organizations.
