  3. Rowing: It’s Good For Your Brain

    The Michigan Men’s Rowing Team, a club varsity sport at U-M, is an athletic team that attracts many engineering students. Close to 95% of the students on the team never rowed before college, and around 50% of the total team is made up of engineers. While it might seem out of place for engineering students to be so highly represented on the team, they see it as a perfect fit.

  5. Over a single weekend, teams from over 23 countries participated in the Global Space Balloon Challenge by launching and recovering high-altitude balloons.

    Michigan’s team, MBuRST, led the creation of this competition in coordination with teams at Stanford and MIT. The challenge was designed as an international education outreach project to encourage global cooperation and generate interest in the field of high-altitude balloon research.

  6. First-Year Engineering Students worked together in teams to design, build, and test remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) that can close valves and collect data underwater. Students learned and utilized principles in topics such as 3D modeling, buoyancy, and teamwork in constructing and operating their vehicles. 

    The class culminated with a competition pitting ROVs against each other at Canham Natatorium at the end of the semester.
