Student Design & Experiential Learning Center
  • Experiential Learning allows students to take lessons learned in the classroom and apply them to real world challenges in a multidisciplinary environment developing confidence and experience that will prepare students for future employment.
  • Students learn beyond the classroom developing valuable skills in the areas of team-based leadership and project management that are best taught through experience  and real world interactions.
  • The Student Design and Experiential Learning Center is more than just teams that compete with projects that are research based, such as research projects utilizing the solar village and service projects best exemplified by our nationally recognized chapter of Engineers Without Borders.  There is something for every student from freshman to graduate students from students studying in business fields and the fine arts to those majoring in  engineering and the traditional sciences.  True success comes from diversity of thought and collaboration of learning.
