Creating better everyday life through engineering and innovation

ABOUT
PROJECTS

OUR MISSION

EMPOWER: As an acronym, it's what we do: Endeavors to Move People Onward With Engineered Results. As a word, it's why we do it: EMPOWER. A student-run, student-based organization, EMPOWER aims to improve the quality of life for the people we work with. We are privileged to gain hands-on experience with engineering design projects while empowering our challengers. In addition to design projects, our student organization provides technical resources and education to student members in preparation for post-graduation innovative work.

OUR PROJECTS

Through EMPOWER, students are able to participate in 2 different kinds of projects, as well as our multi-year exoskeleton project, LLEAP. To learn more about the different kinds of projects we offer, click below!
