UT for REED joins with PUC

This past fall semester, UT for REED has supported an engineering course called "Projects for Underserved Communities." In the course, engineering students assess community needs and the feasibility of an engineering design to meet those needs. This fall, the class identified water projects in Patriensa, Ghana and Santa Cruz, Peru. UT for REED helped them plan a Benefit Concert to raise money for the projects.
