This web site is
being developed and maintained in an attempt to provide the means for
those disadvantaged persons with special needs and problems to find
those that have the skills and knowledge to resolve their problems. This
site makes it possible for both those in need and those with the
know-how to list themselves and to eventually get together for mutual
benefit and rewards.
Assistive Technology Program began in 1991. Its roots are in the senior
project courses in our curriculum and the need to provide our seniors
with sources of motivation beyond the normal. As we introduced our
students to the problems of disadvantaged persons, it became very
obvious that we had found our source of motivation for our students.
Today, the main purpose of the Assistive technology program is to
provide our engineering students with interesting and challenging
problems which may be resolved by applying those technologies that have
been presented in our curriculum.
However, as our experience
and knowledge grew, the demands on the program have grown beyond that
which can be assigned to our senior project students. The Assistive
technology program is now receiving more requests for assistance than
can be responded to by the faculty and students participating in the
program. If you can devote some of your time in helping those in need,

Our current students are strongly
encouraged to check their progress frequently by clicking anywhere on
