IEEE Columbus Section-OSU EPICS Project Overview


Join the Columbus Section and learned about the IEEE EPICS projects. Dr. Delaine will present his research and the impacts of these community based projects.  This type of projects is an avenue for our section to support humanitarian effort within IEEE. Most of all, it's an opportunity to be engaged and provide positive impact to our local community.

Dr. David A. Delaine of IEEE Columbus

Abstract: Engineering projects that seek to promote community development are common. But how do we engage with these to ensure that they are promoting positive impacts? This presentation will highlight research that seeks to strengthen positive while minimizing negative outcomes associated with these efforts.


Dr. David A. Delaine is an Assistant Professor within the Department of Engineering Education at The Ohio State University’s College of Engineering. He leads the Inclusive Community-based Learning (iCBL) Lab that advances knowledge on the ways in which community-based learning (service-learning, outreach, volunteerism) in engineering can impact local communities, students, and other participating stakeholders through reciprocal partnership. The iCBL develops evidence-based approaches within CBL contexts that can support the formation of reflexive engineering professionals while promoting social justice and broadening participation outcomes in engineering. Dr. Delaine has obtained a bachelor’s in electrical engineering from Northeastern University, a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Drexel University, and served as a Postdoctoral Fulbright Scholar at the Escola Politécnica da Universidade de São Paulo.
