As if singlehandedly leading a dozen undergraduates at a time in the realm of real-world research isn’t enough of a challenge, Joe Brown ups the ante, carrying his undergrads to conduct fieldwork overseas — in a foreign-language country.
A dozen School of Civil and Environmental Engineering students will travel to New York this weekend to present their findings from a recent research trip to Bolivia. We’re not talking graduate students who’ve been doing research for months or years. No, this is a group of undergrads who spent just over a week abroad as part of a course they’ve been taking with Joe Brown called Environmental Technology in the Developing World.
The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering has released the first episode of a new podcast that will feature conversations with students, faculty and alumni to explore ideas and help people connect with the School. The aim of the first edition is to help high school students better understand the School and careers in civil or environmental engineering.
