Engineering Sustainable Futures
Engineering students in the Projects for Underserved Communities program at UT Austin are proving you're never too young to make a difference by putting science to good use.

Emily Lamon and Ashwin Ramaswami, respectively a college senior and junior, are putting their academic backgrounds in engineering to good use. In this podcast, they describe the challenges and rewards of planning—and implementing—sustainable water storage and distribution systems with important health and social impacts for communities in Tanzania and Papua New Guinea.
