There are currently 31 engineering design teams at the Faculty of Applied Science. Within these teams, students are innovating in areas from sustainable transportation and robotics, through to earthquake research and biomedical technology. Being involved in a team gives students the opportunity to be creative, develop new technologies, travel and learn from peers, and build vital skills for their careers as professional engineers. Their participation gives them the competitive edge, both as team members and as future engineers or entrepreneurs.
“Only within engineering teams can students seize the opportunity to work at the cutting-edge of solutions to the world’s problems. The unique environment fosters invaluable hands-on collaboration with enthusiastic, like-minded peers. Additionally, a project as complex and intricate as building a car from scratch quickly develops a rigorous understanding of crucial soft skills like project management, communication, and budgeting, without which none of our engineering work would be possible.”
