Tomorrow's Engineers are Making a Difference Today
NYSID’s academic challenge encourages assistive technology innovation for New Yorkers with disabilities in order to remove barriers from the workplace. CREATE offers student engineers the opportunity to put their knowledge to use in the context of a real-life experience during their capstone projects.
