The Adaptive Technology Engineering Network (ATEN) is a relatively new group at OSU, with a focus on accessible engineering for those with disabilities. Members of this club are provided opportunities to learn about what accessible engineering looks like in industry and society via guest speakers. ATEN also provides a variety of accessible engineering projects to provide hands on experience to members who would like to create for the community. While ATEN is under the College of MIME, our members come from a large variety of engineering and other colleges backgrounds, so students who participate in these projects will get the opportunity to gain experience working with those from different fields. Our group is also looking to expand our project list so new members are welcome to bring forward their own adaptive engineering project ideas.
ATEN is welcoming and friendly to those who want to become dedicated members or those who simply want to attend guest lectures. Official members are not required to participate in any project, as these are meant to be available as experiential learning tools. The variety of projects are open to those who would like to further develop their own skills, or would like to learn more about another field from their peers. ATEN also utilizes a lateral organization structure, which allows an easy opportunity to explore different project teams and allows anyone to bring up ideas within those teams. Feel free to visit our zoom meeting to talk to us about what projects we have currently going on or ask us any questions!
Currently, we are working on our program called LEAFS that is held annually during winter term. We also work on a variety of other projects.
