Mission

Our Goals
  • Create a sense of excitement and enthusiasm about solving technical development problems within a social and cultural context
  • Organize project teams to design and implement engineering projects.
  • Publicize research opportunities and encourage students to undertake research on technical development problems
  • Work with the profesional engineering community to develop and strengthen the engineering skills of student members

We invite any interested student, regardless of major, to get involved. Non-engineers are especially welcome to check us out, since the success of our projects relies on the collaboration of many individuals with varied perspectives.
