Ashesi – Dartmouth Engineering and Design Project (ADEPT)
The objective of ADEPT was to crystallize the relationship between Dartmouth College and Ashesi University College around a concrete, collaborative design project. Both universities share an uncommon approach to engineering education, presenting it as part of a broad, liberal-arts experience. By participating in an undergraduate engineering project that is of mutual interest to faculty in both universities, the hope is to strengthen the institutional linkages between Dartmouth College and Ashesi University College.
During the course of 10 weeks, Team ADEPT worked on improving healthcare in
rural Ghana using a human-centered design approach,. The team consisted of 3 students from Dartmouth College, New Hampshire and 5 students from Ashesi University in Berekuso, Ghana.
