UTEP hosting 2019 Engineers for a Sustainable World Conference

The University of Texas at El Paso will host more than 250 professors, researchers, students and other enthusiasts of environmental sustainability from throughout the world this week during the 2019 Engineers for a Sustainable World Conference.

“We are very excited to host this summit of world-changing people, and we look forward to a wonderful conference,” said Shane Walker, Ph.D., associate professor of civil engineering in UTEP’s College of Engineering, and director of UTEP’s Center for Inland Desalination Systems.

Engineers for a Sustainable World is a nonprofit network of more than 1,750 college students and professionals throughout 50 university and professional chapters. The organization’s 2019 conference offers an opportunity to showcase work on technical sustainability projects, engage in design competitions with like-minded peers, and network with sustainability experts and leaders.

This year’s theme is “borderless sustainability” and will examine how the sustainability and design can adapt to differences between cultures.

Attendees will hear from a slew of speakers, including several UTEP professors, as well as keynote speakers Anthony Guerrero, director of facilities and sustainability for the Natural Resources Defense Council; Octaviana Valenzuela Trujillo, Ph.D., professor of applied indigenous studies at Northern Arizona University; and Michelle Rucker, director of the Mars Integration Group for NASA’s Exploration Integration and Science Directorate.

The 14th annual conference will take place at multiple sites on campus from Thursday, April 4, to Sunday, April 7, 2019.
