Why should you join our team?

“Aguaclara has made it clear to me the importance of communication and lifelong friendships; that the key to engineering is a foundation of understanding across ideologies, languages, and cultures. Rather than becoming overwhelmed by the daunting mission that defines Aguaclara, being a part of the team has shown me that there is sophistication in simplicity, innovation in friendship, and beauty in engineering."


- Christopher Galantino, Environmental Engineering '19

“Being surrounded by so many people who are equally committed to using engineering to benefit communities is incredible. It has been so special to do research, watch the implementation of the team’s hard work, and have the opportunity to visit plants in Honduras. AguaClara has inspired a change in my career path to focus more on safe water."
