Saila Parthasarathy is taking her Global Engineering project on the road to India. Along with her team, she partnered with LV Prasad Eye Institute to create a prototype for a wearable magnification device for children with low vision. A few members of her team flew to India over Sloan Innovation Period/Spring Break to present their idea to the company.
Below Saila’s prototype can be seen for the wearable device.
Saila met with the founder, Dr. G.N. Rao. Dr. Prem Nandhini and teammates Anastasia and Boris are also photographed below.
Global Engineering is taught by Prof. Amos Winter. The class focusses on combining “rigorous engineering theory and user-centered product design” for developing and emerging markets.
