September 2017, Puerto Rico was hit by not only one but two major Hurricanes, Irma and Maria, leaving the island devastated. Almost a year after these crippling hurricanes the island is still trying to recover. Three Illinois Tech students, Christopher Riley (ME), Lukasz Kupiec (CE), and Zachary Anderson (CHE) embarked on a two week immersive course “Sustainable Construction and Development in Puerto Rico” to learn first hand how the hurricanes affected the island and its communities and how engineers can design buildings and infrastructure with greater resilience to future hurricanes.
