Join in this unique opportunity to learn about water resources, geotechnical, and transportation engineering in a setting with a rich history of extreme water challenges. Twenty-six percent of the land area of the Netherlands lies below sea level. These areas are largely farmlands that have been reclaimed
Students will become partners with fellow BYU undergraduate and graduate students as well as engineers from our partner Instituto Nacional de Recursos Hidraulicos (INDRHI), the Dominican Republic’s national hydrological service, in applying water resources models methods, and application development to critical problems faced in the Dominican Republic. Courses will focus on distance collaboration with international partners to develop an approach to the specific team project assigned.
The objective of this program is to provide students with opportunities to expand on the technical foundation learned through traditional classroom experiences and curriculum in order to develop the skills that will be necessary to practice and compete in a global environment.
