UT Dallas Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS)

Do you have a background in engineering or computer science and an interest in helping university students with technical projects? Becoming involved in UT Dallas Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) is a great opportunity to connect with students and give back to the community.

EPICS is a class offered at UTD in which undergraduate students work in teams on real engineering projects for local non-profit organizations. UTD Engineer in Residence (EiR) is a student organization helping to pair up each EPICS team with a volunteer mentor each semester. Such a mentor would be required to attend a start-of-the-semester meeting with the EPICS program coordinator, and from there commit a minimum of 1-3 hours per week to provide technical guidance as needed for one student team that semester. UTD EiR is currently looking for volunteers for the Fall 2018 semester. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact Engineer in Residence at If you represent a local organization and would like to have UTD EPICS work on one of your projects, please contact Andrea Turcatti at

Start Working on Your Resume

2016 IEEE Dallas Industry Networking Gala


Sometimes getting the opportunity to sit down face-to-face with a prospective employer is the most difficult obstacle to overcome when seeking a first job. Many recent graduates are far more impressive candidates in reality than they appear on paper, but without prior work experience, their resume continues to be passed over on application after application. The 2016 IEEE Dallas Young Professionals Industry Networking Gala will provide an opportunity for students and young professionals to showcase themselves as impressive candidates. Attendees will enjoy a semi-formal cocktail banquet in the company of a diverse array of industry sponsors, from small-business owners to representatives of the corporate giants.

More information is coming soon and most recent updates can be found here:
