  • Sustainable WaSH Infrastructure for Developing Rural Communities, CIVILEN 5610.01, Offered by Michael Hagenberger.  It is scheduled MW 3-4:20pm in HI 446 in Sp18. Working effectively with developing rural communities to identify and acquire their basic water, sanitation, and hygiene (WaSH) infrastructure needs demands a combination of community development and engineering expertise. At an introductory level this course will bridge the gap between these two disciplines. It will provide the engineer with the knowledge of how to design sustainable WaSH infrastructure systems in the context of a community’s need, and it will provide the community development worker with basic engineering knowledge of WaSH systems to assist their work with communities to meet their infrastructure needs.

  • Certain classroom-based capstone design experience approaches
