CSE/HCDE “Developing World” Capstone

In 2009-10, for the third year, Computer Science & Engineering joined with Human Centered Design & Engineering to offer a year-long senior undergraduate capstone design course on “Designing Technology for Resource-Constrained Environments.”

Students in this year’s course worked to develop a low-cost, easy-to-use portable ultrasound for midwives that will be tested in Uganda — the Midwives’ Ultrasound Project.  The course has been featured by the College of Engineering in a video, website, and mailing to promote the College’s “Capstone Fund.”

You can support UW CSE’s capstone courses by giving to our Annual Fund.  The CSE Annual Fund is used to support our terrific students and faculty, and our terrific educational innovations and experiences.

“Designing Technology for Resource-Constrained Environments” is a collaboration of CSE’s Richard Anderson, Ruth Anderson, and Gaetano Borriello, with HCDE’s Beth Kolko.  You will also be interested in the Change effort, and OpenDataKit.
