Engineering Library Instruction

Helping engineering students develop their information literacy skills.

A senior design and now a graduate student shares his experience of electronic databases

As part of my senior engineering design project, along with my
teammates, I worked on designing a Mechanical water softener using
plasma.

My project:

Water hardness is a major problem is today’s world and
warrants attention. Hard water causes scaling and reduces life of any
devices that it comes in contact with. About 85% of the water in the
US is classified as hard water. Current Water softeners include ion
exchange and reverse osmosis system. These systems have significant
health and environmental impacts.

Appropriate Technology Resources for SEED Lab Thailand and Engineers without Borders Projects

EWB-USA supports community-driven development programs worldwide by collaborating with local partners to design and implement sustainable engineering projects, while creating transformative experiences and responsible leaders. Our 13,800 members work with communities to find appropriate solutions for water supply, sanitation, energy, agriculture, civil works, structures and information systems.

Here are some resources available to help you find information on projects related to Appropriate Technology.
