    name is Cody Oser and I m a super senior 5th year in Civil Engineering with minors in Business Administration and International Development Studies at CSU I ll be graduating in December of 2015 and after school will be serving in the Peace Corps as a Water Resources and Environmental Engineer in Panama In the summer of 2013 I had an opportunity to do an internship abroad in Nairobi Kenya for a small startup company called SunCulture This internship was a fantastic experience that inspired me to get involved as a leader in CSU s Engineers Without Borders managing a potable water supply and distribution system project in El Salvador which was one of the best experiences I had in college Living and working in Kenya even for just a few months was a fantastic experience My daily commute involved overcrowded minibuses and motorcycle taxis my lunch was always from street vendors and my internship even gave me the opportunity to travel around East Africa and go on safari and other adventures SunCulture is an agriculture focused social enterprise company founded by two Americans in Nairobi Kenya which operates throughout East Africa It is focuses on introducing high tech Western agricultural methods to poor smallholder farmers in the region Their core products are solar powered automated irrigation fertilization fertigation systems which dramatically improve the efficiency and output of these small farms allowing the farmers a chance to escape poverty During my time with the company I had the opportunity to work on the design and prototyping of an upgraded system which incorporates weather and soil sensors to automate and optimize fertilizer use and irrigation This is especially critical for these farmers because fertilizer is a major expense and the climate is dry so water is a precious resource This system

    civil engineering student at CSU graduating in December 2015 During my time at CSU I have had the opportunity to learn real world applications both in and out of the classroom I had two internships as an undergraduate student that opened my eyes to the possibilities of civil engineering in the real world Through these experiences I was able to not only decide if this type of career path is right for me but also got to sample different work place environments My first internship was during the summer after my freshman year at CSU and was with the Bureau of Reclamation in my hometown of Carson City Nevada As an intern with the Bureau of Reclamation I was given the task of accompanying employees on field trips as well as doing various in office projects Throughout the summer I got to know the different people in the office and hear their opinions advice and suggestions about schooling finding the perfect job and life in general My second internship was during the summer after my senior year prior to my final semester This internship was with MWH Global and was broken into 3 parts The first part of the internship took up the majority of the summer and had me working with the water resources division at the Sacramento California office While in Sacramento I worked on projects in various stages of development I gained a sense of belonging through the friendships and mentorships built in the Young Professionals Group events and activities The second part of my internship took me to the small town of Yellow Pine Idaho to do fish surveying on an old mining site This part of the internship required both physical and mental strength from me as I bushwhacked my way through the forest with

    each intern gets put into a specific group and gets matched up with a mentor in their field I was placed in the Water Treatment group which is split into two sides design and research My internship has been more on the research side where the Department of the Interior is focusing on desalination and membrane science for new water treatment processes As you can imagine desalination is basically taking the salt out of seawater to make it drinkable Membranes help us to filter out particles like bacteria colloids and even viruses Many membranes systems are two step usually some kind of filtration to get bigger particles out Ultrafiltration Nanofiltration etc and then either forward osmosis or reverse osmosis to remove smaller ions such as salt ions In forward osmosis the water called the solvent moves from an area of low concentration through the membrane to an area of high concentration After the solvent is done moving through the membrane both the right and the left side have equal concentrations of the solvent floating around in it In reverse osmosis we apply a pressure on one side to reverse the flow and push all of the solvent water to the other side In the membrane the raw water enters in to the membrane layers which consist of the outer wrap a spacer the actual membrane the collection material and the central tube We apply a pressure to the raw water to force it to move across the membrane layers into the product tube As the water moves through the membrane layer the salt and other unwanted items are rejected by the membrane and do not enter the product tube The rejected salt called the concentrate then all exits together on the other end With the Bureau of Reclamation my main
