Experiences will include speakers, site visits, and tours. All industry partners have multiple projects and sites relevant to water and energy (e.g., water treatment plant, hydropower project, dam construction, well pad/drill site). These opportunities to see “engineering in action” will allow the participants to understand how research translates to industry. Interaction with personnel from industry will also give insight into various STEM careers and how to best prepare students for these careers.
