The Collegiate Wind Competition aims to prepare students from multiple disciplines to enter the wind energy workforce by providing real-world experience. To help these teams understand wind energy and prepare a competitive proposal, the organizing team provides resources to the students to get them started.
Learn more about the program and check out some of the introductory materials provided to teams as they start to understand the wind industry. You can also hear directly from the students on what they’ve learned from competing and learn the fundamentals of wind energy for yourself.
The U.S. Department of Energy Collegiate Wind Competition 2021 will be governed and adjudicated by the CWC 2021 Rules and Requirements document, which is intended to establish fair contest rules and requirements. In the case of a discrepancy with other competition materials or communication, this document takes precedence. The organizers reserve the right to change contest criteria, rules, and measurable outcomes as needed.
The Collegiate Wind Competition 2022 organizing team held an informational webinar September 30, in which interested students and faculty learned more about the competition and the application process.
Students reflect on their experiences, summarize the competition, and display the unique skills they have developed at the Collegiate Wind Competition 2019 Technical Challenge.
