UW CEE faculty and students collaborate on a number of research projects that have global reach. By traveling to other countries and crossing borders, faculty and students see problems first-hand. This allows them to problem-solve and develop solutions to pressing issues, from air pollution in India to enabling better irrigation and crop production in Pakistan. 

Global Research Project Highlights

Below are just a few of many research projects that have global impact:


Refugee Reconnaissance: Improving Wastewater Treatment During Crisis Response
