Students can learn about business and sustainability issues via lectures and industrial/cultural tours from the faculty from the Universidad del Desarrollo (UDD), with a focus on water resources. Topics will include Sustainability in the Americas, Mining and Geology in Chile, Logistics in Latin America, Applied Innovation and Structural Engineering, Earthquakes and Disasters. Cultural tors will include downtown Santiago, the Port of Valparaiso, Vina Del Mar, and Chillan. Industrial Tours will include the Chargres Foundry, the Vina Ventisquero, the Port of Ventanas, and the Petrox Refinery. In past trips, students visited Santiago's main landfill, the university to learn about how they solve local environmental problems, two sustainable vineyards, a copper foundry, the Yeso Dam, and to Valparaiso (the Unesco World Heritage site). Students and staff also had the opportunity to speak at the Green Innovation Conference, which was hosted by UDD.



Faculty and students in The College of Science, Engineering, and Technology benefit from collaborations with business, industry, government, non-profits, and other regional educational institutions such as the Medical College of Wisconsin. Many of these partnerships facilitate work and education in the Sustainability sector.
