Students visited Mumbai, India during the summer of 2010. The program was coordinated by Professor Daren Chen, Professor of the Practice Ruth Chen, and Drs. Ravi Gudi and A.K. Suresh (IIT Bombay).
Students received a broad exposure to energy and environmental projects, and learned about active collaborative projects underway in areas of energy and environment, materials engineering, transport phenomena and reaction engineering, between Washington University in St. Louis and IIT Bombay. In addition, they visited multinational corporations, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, and a rural village to participate in field experimentation. Students also had a socio-cultural experience, and the opportunity to visit landmark tourist sites such as the Taj Mahal. The two Universities are partners of the McDonnell Academy Global Energy and Environmental Partnership.
Participating Students: Kwabena Adjei, John Coveyou, Katelyn Disterhoft, Williams Ferriby, Peter Glaser, Chloe Greenberg, Jennifer Head, Michal Hyrc, Craig Jacobson, Anne Joiner, Williams Koury, Lauren Krone, Kelly Leung, and Sarag Paleg.
