Gain Skills as a Student & Professional
From working on this project, members will gain knowledge and skills while performing R&D in the fields of Alternative Energy, Hardware Engineering, and Environmental Engineering. They will also learn methods to effectively create experiments, conduct testing, and analyze data of different types. Students will also be exposed to simulation and design programs such as AutoCAD or Aspen. Along the way, all members will have valuable practice with communication, critical thinking, teamwork, and problem solving skills.
