A huge “congratulations!” goes out to our Abroad101 Student of the Week, Chloe Chambers! Chloe is currently a fourth year at the University of Bath, UK and is studying Civil Engineering with a minor in Architectural Engineering. Her ambition and desire to make the world a better place with sustainable engineering makes Chloe a student who stands out to us greatly. Chloe is passionate about the STEM field, and actively participates in events to encourage the achievements of women in engineering, such as the Women’s Engineering Society Student Conference and the Guinness World Record attempt for high-fives on National Women in Engineering Day. Following her graduation, Chloe plans to be a civil engineer and an advocate of sustainable design. She feels passionately about the effects that humanity has had on the environment around us, wants to stop the depletion of vital natural resources, and wants to influence others with her work to join the Green Movement.
Through university lectures, industry access site visits, the Capstone Project and local excursions, Chloe will receive hands-on learning from the GREEN program in Iceland. As a part of the program she will be asked to come up with her own renewable energy concept and design a solution to overcome a potential issue that has been identified by the group, as a part of the Capstone Project initiative. She is currently working on a dissertation research project that examines the use of hemp-lime concrete in the building industry, and the benefits of using this sustainable material. While Chloe is an adventurous student who is looking forward to being challenged by the GREEN program, she also plans to use this experience to join the GREEN alumni network in order to connect with those that share the same passion as her. Chloe would appreciate any donations to help her reach her goal of raising $800 learn about sustainability and renewable energy in Iceland.
