U of M CEGE Department, Students Receive NCEES Award

Each year, the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES), of which the Board is a member, names Engineering Education Award winners. This October, Board Chair Nirmal Jain, PE, and Immediate Past Chair Dennis Martensen, PE, were please to present on behalf of NCEES an award to the Department of Civil, Environment, and Geo-Engineering (CEGE) at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.

The students and their university advisors and professional mentors won for their project, a multistage drip irrigation system. The group designed and installed the system for the 500-person community of Filakit Geregera, Ethiopia. Prior to the building of the irrigation system, multiple farm fields went uncultivated due to the inability to supply them with water during the dry season.
