What is 3p-Innovations?

3p-Innovations is a laboratory/studio, launched in 2003. Graduate and undergraduate students interested in Development Engineering are mentored in this space. Mentoring vehicles include traditional course-work, inquiry- and/or design-based projects, and service projects. The ps stand for poverty alleviating, prosperity-/wellness-building, and planet-sustaining.

Development Engineering prepares students to develop, pilot, and evaluate technological solutions, designed to improve human and economic development within complex low-resource settings, such as Sub-Saharan Africa.

“We hold to heart the notion that, it is not an innovation unless it is being widely used.” – Prof. Kisaalita, Founder and Director of 3p-Innovations
