City College faculty and students recently applied their academic expertise internationally, traveling to and conducting research in Hungary and Senegal.
City College and CUNY students joined Hungarian students last summer in Kőszeg, Hungary, a small, historic northwest Hungary municipality, to undertake a month-long trans-disciplinary research and planning project, spearheaded by Professor Hillary Brown, director of the Sustainability in the Urban Environment master’s program at the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture. The team included undergrad, graduate level and Ph.D. students from varying academic backgrounds—hydrology, engineering, sustainability, planning, economics, anthropology, civil engineering, forestry, agronomy, and ecology.
Prof. Hillary Brown and the students worked with faculty from the Institute of Advanced Studies, Kőszeg (iASK), as well as with CCNY’s Charles Vörösmarty, civil engineering professor and director of the Environmental Sciences Initiative at the Advanced Science Research Center, to research a circular economy model and its practical application for revitalizing the economy of Kőszeg and its bioregion.
