In 1992, SWE launched a new collegiate section competition sponsored by Boeing called “Team Tech”. The Team Tech competition emphasizes the importance of teamwork and interactions with industry in the engineering educational process. A team from every region gets sponsored to compete at the SWE Annual Conference in October in Nashville.
Team Tech is a new event to PSWE this year. Led by Jessica Place, a team of 9 girls are working with ADM to create a filtration system for a final product line to eliminate heavy metals such as nickel from the waste water.
I am thrilled to be in the position of putting together the first team PSWE has for Team Tech! We have a great team and partnership with ADM which gives me high hopes that we can make an lasting impression at competition in October
