Engineering Capstone Team Visits Partner Village In Tanzania

Maureen Langlois Wells to Wellness

A team from The Ohio State University’s Department of Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering traveled to Tanzania’s Kilimanjaro region in May to work with a Masai community to develop rural water system solutions. The group, comprised of recent graduates as well as one senior student, was led by Dr. Michael Hagenberger, associate professor of practice in the department. The trip, which was part of the engineering students’ culminating project, provided a chance for the students to meet community members, determine the technical needs at the site, and develop a plan for designing a sustainable system.

The team’s reflections about their experience in Tanzania can be found on their trip blog.
