Seminar Description

Access to reliable clean water is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity today. College of Science and Engineering associate dean and professor Paul Strykowski (mechanical engineering) will lead a group of students on a seminar to Tanzania during winter break 2013-14 for a hands-on engineering challenge with real-world impact.

During this program, student teams will evaluate community needs and infrastructure to model potable water-handling systems in the beautiful southern highlands regions of Tanzania. Student proposals will be evaluated by a St. Paul non-profit organization.

The seminar will include a cultural and geographical survey of Tanzania, its land, and people as well as a trip to Ruaha National Park, one of the world's most famous safari destinations.
