Engineering Student Podcast

The latest episode of “The Engineering Student Experience Podcast” explores what it’s like to be an engineer at Desert Water Agency (DWA). Paul Nissenson, associate professor and associate chair of mechanical engineering, sits down with Steve Johnson (’93, civil engineering) and Gerardo Maldonado (’19, mechanical engineering) who work at DWA. They discuss various projects they’ve handled, how working for a public agency like DWA compares to working for a private company, and tips for engineering students who want to enter the field of water management. Email feedback to Nissenson at
