Beyond the Classroom

David Pines



David Pines, an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering in the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture at the University, talks about his interest in water, and his focus on environmental engineering, particularly as it relates to challenges in water capture, management, and distribution.

He discusses an innovative fresh water project underway in a village in India; the need for a collaborative, holistic, team-based approach to such projects and for long-term follow-through. Pines also talks about the effect of global climate change on water availability in the hot countries; opportunities for solar power development in these countries; and a project to design and manufacture an improved threshing machine for Kenyan farmers.
