Goals

ISD course goals integrate and advance the U.S. Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) accreditation criterion throughout the design experience.

1. To provide students a service-learning design experience situated in the developing world so they can explore the technical, economical, environmental and social implications of engineering design and construction.

2. To afford students a cross-cultural learning experience, that is, to prepare engineering students for ethical, reflective, quality service to diverse communities and demonstrate that social responsibilities of engineers are fundamentally important and address real facets of sustainable engineering with global and community awareness.

3. To give students experiences in interdisciplinary work, that is, to provide students concrete opportunities to learn new skills, such as international construction techniques, to think critically, and to test new roles in an environment that encourages risk-taking and rewards competence.
