James P. King, professor and associate department head of New Mexico State University’s Civil Engineering Department, recently lectured at two Indian Institutes of Technology campuses in India.
King was invited by former student who is currently a professor at the ITT campus in Hyderabad. His trip lasted nine days, from Jan. 4 to 13. King gave three lectures during his time in India and visited a total of three cities. His lectures were part of the winter school, an intensive short course.
“It was a great experience,” King said. “I had a very exceptional cohort of colleagues, both among the universities in India and here in the United States.”
In Hyderabad, King spoke on data acquisition related to telemetric water sources. His second lecture covered the hydrologic effects of water conservation.
In Mumbai, King spoke about adapting to climate change in New Mexico. He also traveled to Bengaluru where he acted as a reviewer for an ITT-funded research program.
