  • American engineers share ingenuity to boost world’s poor

    Boston Globe - 05/27/2014

    WITH HIS column reporting on the work of engineers from UMass Lowell in Haiti (“Truly civil engineering,” Metro, May 19), Adrian Walker has touched on a significant transformation within American society.

    Quietly but surely, through the confluence of social responsibility, ingenuity, and youthful energy, the profession of engineering is becoming a prime instrument of fundamental change for the world’s poor.

    These connections between engineering and agriculture are so powerful that they are becoming an important tool for people to lift themselves from poverty on a broad scale.

    It is a hopeful sign that students, many from our local colleges and universities, are in the forefront.
