Professor Solomon Darwin is teaching an engineering class this semester on “Smart Cities.” This class welcomed primarily engineering and Haas students and challenged them to build a prototype that will enhance certain elements for the city of Visakhapatnam in India. Each group is working on a smart solution for transportation, food and water, education, security and more. The class will make their final presentations to the Indian government and corporate executives in January.
Innovation has been a long tradition at Haas and with the encouragement of our faulty and professors, our students have the ability to impact real change. If you have a passion or interest I encourage you to pursue it! Take advantage of our alumni and on campus resources. We have experts on entrepreneurship, technology, and innovation right at our fingertips. Visit the resource centers or make an appointment with faculty and see what they are working on. The wheels of innovation never stop spinning so hop on board and go for a ride.
