Honduras Water Project Course offered for AY 2015-16

ENG 398/598 HWP will be offered again in 2015-2016 to teach students who are interested in international development about how to provide sustainable infrastructure solutions by focusing on community needs, culture, and political structure.

This year-long course is open to undergraduate and graduate students in all disciplines. Working with a community in rural Honduras, the students develop an understanding of community needs for a safe drinking water supply, investigate conditions that affect the operation and sustainability of the system, visit the community over Spring Break 2016 to perform field investigations, and develop a holistic plan to improve the community’s health through drinking-water improvements and education.

In addition to engineering students, we welcome all disciplines and particularly encourage students in Community Health, Political Science, Spanish language, Global Studies, Dietetics, and Education to participate.
