Summer Abroad Ireland, "What's in Your Water?"


Published on

This program is based at the National University of Ireland in Galway, the cultural center of the west of Ireland, and provides students with a practical and scientific understanding of water quality. Students will study the principles that can guide sustainable development of water resources. The course is aimed at engineering and science students who wish to improve their understanding of how human activities affect water and to acquire a foundation in environmental engineering. The focus will be on the quantitative aspects of water quality management and public health. Field trips to the Aran Islands, the Burren National Park, water and wastewater treatment plants and other nearby sites of interest as well as guest seminars by Irish scientists and engineers will be included in the program.
