UE students Catherine Albers, Phoebe Hodina, Jyl Loehr, Matthew Preble, Katelyn Spainhour, Kyle Tiemann, Kevin Ulrich, and Chris West will spend their last days of summer break halfway across the world, participating in business and engineering projects in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

From August 8-19,  the students will work with the nonprofit organization G.O. Ministries on several projects in Mongolia, from expanding local craft businesses to finding sustainable heat sources for Soviet-era buildings. They will conduct on-the-ground research and collect data to use in their senior capstone projects. Once completed in May 2013, their finished work — including building designs and business plans — will be delivered to G.O. Ministries and implemented by the organization.

Assistant professor of mechanical engineering John Layer and associate professor of management Pete Sherman will accompany the group to Mongolia. 

The University of Evansville wishes to thank the Institute for Global Enterprise in Indiana and the Kern Family Foundation for their generous support of this educational experience.
