Experiential Learning through CUAS (EL CUAS) is a summer program where students from different disciplines and backgrounds work together in teams to plan, build, and test a system that builds on the university's sustainable initiatives. The program provides a valuable opportunity for students to engage in an experiential learning program which focuses on creating solutions to current issues in food production or sustainable urban systems. Students take the spring course
Fundamentals of Sustainability and spend all of Summer I working on sustainability projects with science, engineering, and components of other disciplines. The program also includes field trips and a stipend of $2000. Students will also present findings at the UHD Graduate and Student Internship Fair, UHD Student Research Conference and potentially at one additional local/national conference (travel will be covered).
This program is funded by the USDA.
