Summer ChE Trip
ChE Assistant Teaching Professor Courtney Pfluger traveled to Brazil with 22 students for a Dialogue of Civilizations in Summer 1. The focus of this Dialogue was on Sustainable Energy and how Brazil has been able to supply over 80% of its electrical grid with sustainable sources and technologies. We met with Brazilian companies and political leaders on their innovative technologies and ideas to grow Brazil’s sustainable development. We also performed a project with Brazilian engineering students looking at innovative ways to implement sustainable energy technologies in Sao Paulo and Boston.
