Center for Assistive Technology
Assistive technology is broadly defined as a technological solution to enable an improved quality of life. This center will identify socially relevant problems and develop engineering solutions by engaging students and faculty at Miami University across multiple divisions. MU-CAT will conduct externally funded interdisciplinary research projects; engage students in socially relevant, experiential learning; and help recruit women students to engineering majors. Miami University Center for Assistive Technology, housed within CEC, is an interdisciplinary center working collaboratively with Scripps Gerontology Center as well as the Center for Social Entrepreneurship in Farmer School of Business.
