Guatemala

New for 2019, Dean Shay invites Cooper students with a passion for applying their engineering skills for social good to consider how their skills fit with the local needs.  She and Prof. Simson are teaming up to bring a group of students to the Barbara Ford Peace Building Center in Quiche to work on a variety of projects, including evaluating the site for a novel type of fuel cell so it is less dependent on the expensive and not-always-reliable electrical grid, evaluating the site for solar (PV) panels, designing feedback control systems for greenhouse and fish pond temperature control, and others.  See the “Opportunities in Guatemala” presentation for more information, or contact Dean Shay or Prof. Simson.

Iceland

For the eleventh and possibly the last time, Prof. Dell invites Cooper students to apply for the popular Iceland Study Abroad program for summer 2020. Successful applicants will conduct green energy harvesting research at the Agricultural University of Iceland with Prof. Dell and faculty from the University of Iceland. You will visit geysers, hot springs and glaciers. You will be part of a team effort conducting hands on real research. We will use basic thermodynamics, take energy measurements, collect field data, and use infrared thermal imaging. There will be interdisciplinary work available on a major geothermal powered sculpture in Reykjavik. Student participants have joined the faculty as co- authors on numerous international award-winning conference papers, and most recently a book chapter.

Italy

Embark on an interdisciplinary experience combining architecture, engineering and archeology with the "Field School at Monteverdi." Partner with students from University of Siena, Italy, SUNY Buffalo and Michigan State. Participation will include excavations of 3rd century, late Etruscan, Roman villages, with specific attention to a Medieval Castle and bridge reconstruction. Architecture and engineering students will engage in remote sensing work including drone photography of the archaeological site. Students will also be introduced to different Geophysical surveying methods, EID 300, 3D Augmented Reality, architectural and material Reconstructions. This is open to only 1-2 engineering students.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
