Peugeot Center for Engineering Service in Developing Communities
When you think of college mission trips, you might not think of engineering. But since 2004, that is exactly what Lipscomb's Raymond B. Jones College of Engineering has done—create unique mission trips based on engineering needs. From water towers in Honduras to solar power systems in the Dominican Republic to bridges in Guatemala, engineering students, faculty and corporate supporters have ventured off the traditional blueprints to touch the lives of families and communities thousands of miles away.
As the vision of the Peugeot Center for Engineering Service in Developing Communities, these missions will continue to create much needed infrastructures, providing opportunities for more engineering students and professionals to enhance and meet critical needs in underserved communities around the globe.
Give us a few minutes and let us introduce you to the center and a few of the people who have been involved in our work. Watch our video here.
