California State Universities are working with seventy-seven California water districts to produce eco-friendly solutions to water supply challenges in the state. Factors such as rising water prices, a growing population and aging water systems necessitate new solutions to sustain the population presently and in the future.
This effort is not underpinned by state funding and contracts. Rather, campus departments, courses and organizations that are capable to delivering viable solutions are welcome to participate.
Relevant, participatory education regarding any subject matter is important. Moreover, as you determine where you wish to go to school and possible major areas of study, consider how much need and interest the market and world have for that which you are contemplating. Also, consider how well different institutions are able to deliver unique, effective, meaningful experience-filled training pertinent to your objectives.
You may not be interested in a state water project. However, it would be nice to graduate with the ability to document that some element of your undergraduate work had already demonstrated practical application.
