WiscWind, a registered student organization at UW-Madison, is looking for new members to join the team for the 2020-21 school year. WiscWind competes in the U.S. Department of Energy Collegiate Wind Competition, which challenges teams of undergraduate students from around the country to design, build and test a wind turbine prototype as well as develop a detailed project development plan for a large-scale wind farm. WiscWind also performs outreach to local communities to teach about wind energy.
WiscWind provides the opportunity for students to apply knowledge from many different courses and disciplines to a hands-on renewable energy project while building skills in design, fabrication, communication, and project management. We encourage sophomore through senior-level students to apply to join the team. Upper-level students may be able to combine WiscWind work with relevant coursework, including senior design.
WiscWind serves as a great resume builder in the rapidly growing industry of renewable energy. Students from all majors are welcome to inquire about how their skills and interests may contribute to the WiscWind team.
WiscWind is holding an online info session to introduce WiscWind and the Collegiate Wind Competition to interested students. The webinar will be held April 30, 2020 at 6 p.m. Central Time. Please go to this URL to register: https://go.wisc.edu/q65xis
