“Students worked for nine months on the project,” said Mechanical Engineering professor C.T. Lin, the team’s faculty adviser. “They worked as a team, learned about real-world engineering, improved on their presentation and writing skills, and won the international competition,” “This project experience has really prepared them for their future engineering jobs. Winning is fun, but learning is lifelong.”
