Design teams are continuing their weekly meetings and would love new members to sign up. We also have a couple social events coming up that you don't want to miss! Follow us on social media for constant updates on future events and new opportunities to be involved!

We are also looking for a captain for the Geotech Design Competition. No experience is required! For more information, contact an e-board member or email
