EPIC’s cooperating organizations aspire to provide integrated experiential learning through hands-on exposure to research practices, emerging technologies, design thinking, interdisciplinary experiences, and innovative problem-solving.

We welcome students, faculty, staff, and community partners to learn more, and to share how we may best support your needs in an ever-changing world.

“When people from disparate fields work together, they advance knowledge and practice. And when today’s students become tomorrow’s teachers, researchers, and professionals, the total effect is that a given field–be it engineering or music or gaming or medicine–matures and transforms as new perspectives are taken into account.”
