Peace Engineering, Entrepreneurship, and Renewable Energy
The University of New Mexico, in collaboration with Universidad Nacional de la Plata, will design a bilateral exchange program focused on peace engineering and renewable energy. Students and faculty from each university will travel to the partner university to study renewable energy via lithium batteries and smart grid technology. This program will provide students with a dynamic, intensive international experience in peace engineering while also serving to deepen the relationship between faculty members at both universities. These new connections are expected to lead to the creation of joint and/or dual degree masters and doctoral programs between the two institutions.
