2012 Environmental Capstones

Please join us for the 2012 Environmental Capstone student presentations. This year, the class is focusing on designing a "shovel-ready" drinking water system for the village of Bbanda, Uganda. The project includes pumping of groundwater, tank storage, and distribution to a number of tap stands. This is a very exciting project, because Northeastern's Engineers Without Borders (EWB) student group is planning to actually implement this design starting later this year. Three Capstone teams are working in competition to come up with the best design. The details are posted here: http://www1.coe.neu.edu/~ferdi/files/EnvCapstone2012.pdf
