Competitive Student Teams
Engineering in practice
The Rawl Engineering Practice Facility provides students with a facility that fosters collaboration, providing all the tools required to bring an idea from concept to finished product. Teams work side-by-side in open bays where classroom knowledge becomes practical experience. Students that choose to work on a team learn how to collaborate, create, compete and win. A list of these events can be found on the left side of this page underneath the navigation window and on the Experience Engineering Facebook Page.
