The GTIA Irrigation Project is a global collaboration between students at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN, USA and students at the National University of Rwanda in Butare, Rwanda. Students are designing an irrigation system for a rural farm in the Bugesera region to increase crop output. The objective is to design a system that is both sustainable and economically feasible.
The mission of GTIA's project is to develop an agricultural irrigation system to aid in reducing poverty in the Gashora Sector of Rwanda using environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable design practices.
This is a collection of resources including the presentations given for the GTIA/ESW-Purdue senior design team's capstone project course.
