An electrical engineering senior design team—Carolina Guerrero-Rocha, Jackson Osborn and team advisor Jaedo Park—has received a $5,000 grant through the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) Center for Grid Engineering Education (GRIDED) – http://grided.epri.com/. The University of Colorado Denver was made eligible for this program through efforts by associate professor Fernando Mancilla-David. Guerrero-Rocha and Osborn’s project is titled “Power Potty,” and has the goal of using microbial fuel cells to generate power from waste in developing countries.
At the CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing, we focus on providing our students with a comprehensive engineering education at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level. Faculty conduct research that spans our five disciplines of civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science and engineering. The college collaborates with industry from around the state; our laboratories and research opportunities give students the hands-on experience they need to excel in the professional world.
