Take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity to explore the amazing engineering feats of ancient and modern Peruvian civilizations while completing EGEN 310 Multi-disciplinary Engineering Design and a 3 credit Spanish language program. All levels from beginner to expert Spanish courses are offered in small groups taught by Peruvian faculty at Centru Tinku. Language credits and study abroad experience can be used towards MSU's International Engineering Certificate.
Join us for a 4-night trek through the Andean mountains with local guides ending at Machu Picchu, one the Seven Wonders of the World and UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Inca trails are a popular tourist destination to worldwide travelers but suffers from lack of clean drinking water; resulting in large amounts of plastic bottle waste. EGEN 310 students will design and prototype water purification systems that will be field tested along the trek.Study the challenges of supplying clean water to Lima while exploring the culture of the dynamic metropolitan area on the west coast of South America.Visit the floating islands of Uros on the highest navigable lake in the world, Lago Titicaca.
