  • More than 20 business and engineering students make up a Collegiate Wind Competition team that qualified for the competition in Chicago in May. The students from Management 435 joined with 18 engineering students to develop a research-supported business model for a marketable wind turbine. At the competition they will design, build and test a wind turbine, conduct market research, develop a business plan and site a wind farm. NAU is one of 12 teams selected.
