Building EOD Robots to Benefit International Communities
Since 2013, under the leadership of Dr. Garrett Clayton, dozens of Villanova Engineering students have worked with the Golden West Humanitarian Foundation to build a low-cost humanitarian explosive ordnance disposal robot capable of operating in low-income countries, like Cambodia.
Villanova Engineers are inspired to solve problems, think creatively, work collaboratively and innovate in every field.
