Most colleges and universities across the country that have engineering degree programs, have engineering project teams. But none of them have a project teams program like Clarkson. Here at Clarkson, we differentiate ourselves by bringing all of our unique engineering project teams under one roof - literally and figuratively. Our 12 competitive student teams come together under a unifying department: SPEED, which stands for Student Projects for Engineering Experience and Design.
Whether you’re interested in race cars or robotics, bridge design or aeronautics, joining one of the SPEED teams gives you the competitive edge for your future career while building lifelong friendships at the same time. Teams compete in national engineering competitions, and members don’t need engineering prowess to participate. Anyone interested can join a team and bring their own expertise - in business, accounting, engineering, building, research, creativity and more.
Have you participated in FIRST Robotics or Project Lead the Way in high school? If so, you may be eligible for up to $24,000 in scholarships to attend Clarkson for your undergraduate education. Learn more about our special awards and scholarships.
