Collegiate Wind Competition
The Collegiate Wind Competition (CWC) aims to prepare undergraduate students from multiple disciplines to enter the wind energy workforce by providing real-world technology experience. The CWC organizing team typically selects 10–13 teams to compete each year. Throughout the academic year leading up to the competition, participating teams design, build, and test a prototype wind turbine; develop a site plan and cost-of-energy analysis for a wind farm; conduct outreach with the wind industry, their local communities, and local media outlets, and submit reports on each of these activities. The competition culminates in the spring, where teams conduct final turbine testing and present their work to a panel of wind energy experts.
