Sustaingineering is a student team that designs, develops and deploys sustainable technology solutions for renewable energy applications in remote and developing communities. Our goal is to create power solutions to address the global challenge of climate change and to improve the quality of life of the people living in these communities.
Founded in 2014, by Dr. Martin Ordonez and a group of undergraduate students, Sustaingineering now comprises more than 60 members across two locations: the University of British Columbia and Technologico de Monterrey. They are currently engaged in multiple projects in multiple countries, such as solar water pumping in Nicaragua and solar-powered homes in Mexico. These international projects are made possible by generous sponsorship support from the Fred Kaiser Foundation and the Fred Kaiser Professorship. By adopting an interdisciplinary approach, Sustaingineering brings together students from multiple engineering disciplines and different faculties to tackle real-world problems. This initiative allows undergraduate students to gain practical skills, while strengthening their sense of environmental and social responsibility.
