On June 7, 2018, Dr. Kelvin Cheu gave a talk on LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and SmartCode to 16 UTEP students and 16 University of Piura, Peru students, as part of UTEP’s summer sustainable engineering study abroad program. 

Led by Associate Professor Dr. Carlos Chang, The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) in the USA and the University of Piura (UDEP) in Peru developed a summer faculty-led study abroad program that helps U.S. and Peruvian students build the skills and knowledge required to tackle the global sustainability issues associated with the grand engineering challenges of this century. These include: making solar energy economical, providing access to clean water and restoring and improving urban infrastructure. These challenges are of particular relevance in developing countries of the Americas.
