This is a Winter Break program designed for engineering students interested to gain a better understanding of the cultural aspects of engineering and who are passionate about service-learning. By investigating the role of engineering on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, students will gain a better understanding of engineering as it is practiced in Peru in comparison to US.
This course will include instruction pre-travel to Peru for the international experience. The goals of this course are to gain a better understanding of engineering as it is practiced in Peru in comparison to US practice. The United Nations Sustainability Goals (UNSDG) will serve as a major framework for developing an understanding of engineering efforts related to these goals. Additionally, this course will build on an international design experience taking place in the CIVE 103 course during the Spring 2021 semester. This experience will not be required for this course, but it will provide further context for the Peruvian experience.
