Active Project Teams

31 Project Teams; Endless Possibility

Thirty-one project teams provide students with a rich, multidisciplinary experience, working in diverse teams to tackle challenging, real-world problems. Many of our teams compete regionally, nationally, and internationally in engineering design and build competitions. Others work with local and global community partners or develop open-source apps and data-driven solutions. And if you look below the surface, our teams include sub-teams that specialize in a wide variety of technical challenges and also business, fundraising, operations, and logistics.

Design and Build Teams

Design and build teams engage in a novel design process and build cycle each year. Their work often culminates with participation in regional, national, or global competition where they can test and validate their designs, receive valuable feedback, and network with peers and industry experts.
