The Master's International Program is a partnership between Michigan Tech and the Peace Corps, which affords students the opportunity to incorporate Peace Corps service into a Master of Science in Civil Engineering or Environmental Engineering.
Civil and environmental engineering students enrolled in the Peace Corps Master’s International Program are well suited to serve as volunteers on projects addressing water supply, sanitation, air quality, and watershed protection. Example assignments include developing watershed management programs and designing/constructing water supply and wastewater treatment systems—often in partnership with provincial or municipal governments. Students take part in all aspects of their project, including community organization, site analysis (e.g., surveying), design, financing, scheduling, construction, operation/maintenance, and any legal issues.
