Collegiate Wind Competition Sign

An interdisciplinary group of undergraduate students from various departments on campus is currently taking a comprehensive, two-semester course as part of the 2016 Department of Energy Collegiate Wind Competition. In order for the UMass students to compete in the national contest, the course will prepare them to develop a business plan for a novel wind turbine used in off-grid applications, and then it will train them to design, build, and test that turbine.
