The CEE International Senior Design (“iDesign”) program continued this year with a trip to Panama, August 13-27. Twelve students (10 CEE, 1 GMES, 1 ME) divided into three teams and traveled to rural sites in western Panama. Hosted by Peace Corps Volunteers, the students collected data for their fall semester senior design projects – two water supply systems and a river crossing, respectively. Other trip highlights included visits to the Panama Canal and the Biodiversity Museum.
The trip was led by Professors David Watkins and Melanie Kueber Watkins. Professor of Practice Mike Drewyor is helping to mentor the design teams in the fall term.
