Inside the Program

Collaborative project helps local kids with disabilities

As an engineering student, you have the opportunity to work hands-on in your industry while also making a difference in children’s lives through GoBabyGo! 

The collaborative program involves engineering and physical therapy students who modify off-the-shelf toy ride-on cars for children with disabilities. 

“It allows me to engage my mind. In the end you’ve done something to help someone less-fortunate than yourself,” said computer engineering major Brandon Nece.


In this ABET-accredited program, you’ll study a broad array of electives or concentrate on hardware, computer networking or electrical engineering. As a senior, you’ll work in a team on a two-semester project—giving you practical experience you’ll put to use in your future engineering career.


WSU’s vast industry connections, and work-based learning for every major, gives computer engineering students the chance to grow their professional network, gain practical experience, earn a paycheck—and open doors to their dream careers.
