    Our very own Radha Basu taught ENGR 1 – Introduction to Engineering at the Frugal Innovation Lab at the beginning of this quarter. ENGR 1 seeks to introduce different engineering disciplines to new engineering students like interdisciplinary aspects of engineering, engineering professionalism, ethics, and civic engagement. The Frugal Innovation Lab is one of eight modules during this course.


    Over the course of this class, Frugal Innovation Lab presented our unique brand of socially responsible engineering to over 180 students!  


    Thanks again for reading, and as always comments, complaints, tips and suggestions can be sent to


    Happy Humpday!
