Arctic Winds


University of Alaska Fairbanks has previously been involved in the U.S. Department of Energy Collegiate Wind Competition and seeks to continue its legacy. While designing the turbine acts as the university’s senior design project, many of the new team members chose to participate because they saw the competition as an opportunity to learn about the wind industry. In addition, designing the turbine acts as the students’ senior capstone design project. Researching and developing a small wind turbine is a demonstration of the skills and knowledge students have learned during their college careers.
