Alternative Energy Development in the Brazilian Southeast

May-June, 2017

Students from Northeastern University traveled throughout Southeastern Brazil learning and interacting with renewable energy topics in Brazil.


The group included 22 students and led by an engineering faculty and T.A. from Northeastern.


The program included an international immersion with 16 students from Mackenzie University. The interaction, hosted at Mackenzie University, involved students from both institutions working together in teams to research, create and present a comparative analysis of the viability of alternative energy technologies in both the U.S. and Brazilian markets.


The month-long intercultural learning program was complemented with a ‘service-focused’ engagement wherein both Brazilian and U.S. students worked with a local organization called Sociedade do Sol to learn how to make and install low-cost solar paneling for a residential community.
