Engineering students respond to climate change

UWindsor engineering students are bracing for a wetter future created by climate change by examining and improving the design of local water systems.

More than 100 Civil and Environmental Engineering students gathered in the Centre for Engineering Innovation on March 22, 2016 — United Nation’s World Water Day — to present ideas that combat growing levels of precipitation scientists say is a result of climate change.

Reducing the environmental footprint of buildings

A UWindsor team of student engineers has built a natural gas powered engine in hopes of reducing the environmental footprint of commercial and residential buildings.

The group was invited to share its project with hundreds of students and academics from across the world at the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Winter Conference on Jan. 24, in Orlando, Florida.
