University of San Diego students create sustainable energy project for Sudan

In response to the number of people worldwide who do not have access to electricity, engineering students from the University of San Diego are creating a sustainable energy system for the village of Theou in southern Sudan, the school reports.

The students who are involved in the initiative, which is called Engineering a Brighter Sudan, are designing a power generation storage system for the Theou Village School. The project includes solar panels, among other sustainable energy solutions.

"Electricity is something that we take for granted here in the U.S.," Emmet Perl, one of the students working on the project, told the news source. "What we don't realize is that there are many people in this world who have never been around electricity. What is so tremendous about our project is that we will be giving the people of Theou electricity when they might never have access to it otherwise."

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, professionals in science, technology, engineering and math occupations can earn an average of $64,650 per year.
