As part of their Capstone Senior Design classes, UGA College of Engineering students have been working all year long on experiential learning projects. Students work with industry and community partners and are provided with the opportunity to develop essential skills required of them when they enter the workforce.

Many of these projects are done through a collaboration with the Archway Partnership. This year, students worked in five different Archway communities – Grady, Hart, Pulaski, Spalding and Washington counties. Projects ranged from a wastewater sludge management program in Spalding County to a structural assessment of a historic building in Grady County. The groundwork laid by the student teams can help Archway communities save many thousands of dollars in public money as they get a headstart on design plans or feasibility studies.
