Service Learning Experiences in the Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering


  • Coordinator: Clara Salueña Pérez (clara.saluena@urv.cat)
  • Community organization: Social Gardens URV
  • Summary: This project offers students the chance to get involved in hydraulic engineering by working in teams to provide solutions to the challenges relating to the distribution and management of water for the URV's Social Gardens. The gardens are an environmental and social innovative project in which members of the university community work with socially vulnerable groups in an setting that fosters culture of protection, conservation and environmental sustainability. According to the water needs of orchards and rainfall in Tarragona, we measure a tank capacity of 50,000 liters and decided the location, sizing the collector pipes, pumping equipment and drafted the budget. The expense became unviable and was considered the need to rethink it to study how to reduce it.
