Engineering at Sea

Attention: All Adventurous UVA Engineering Students

The MV Explorer will embark from Nassau on May 20th, 2011. Its mission for the ensuing, 26-day voyage to seven countries throughout Central America will be to explore the greatest challenges we face during the 21st century: energy, the environment, hunger, access to clean water, education, human rights…. This will be a truly unique opportunity to learn about and to experience a world quite apart from the one most of us know.

UVA courses you can experience as part of the ‘Engineering A New Tomorrow’ voyage of Semester At Sea, taught by world-class experts (some of them UVA Engineering School faculty), range from sustainable shelter design, food production, renewable energy, and water to the political economics of Central America and global health.

For more information, or to apply, go to www.semesteratsea.org. There is no deadline for application, but don’t wait too long! You will be notified of acceptance within about ten days following receipt of your application. Contact Prof. Dana Elzey if you need further information or have questions.

Sincerely,

Dana Elzey
