Interdisciplinary student project groups and students in the Clean Energy Systems track of the Mechanical Engineering B.S. degree work in the Clean Energy Systems Laboratory to develop clean energy sources, focusing on environmentally friendly and efficient energy systems.
In addition to its role as a classroom laboratory space, the lab is home to the Clean Energy Club, an extracurricular interdisciplinary group that has designed a system to purify drinking water for Haitians as part of Project Haiti. The Aqua Pack, a complete water-purification system housed in a single backpack, was also developed in this lab.
This is one of four labs available to Mechanical Engineering students for research purposes as part of the M.S.and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering.
