"There is no better experience for hands-on projects at Clarkson."

The SPEED program makes project-based team learning experiences available to all undergraduate students. The program also works to increase the project involvement of women and students of color.

Many of the SPEED project opportunities stem from national engineering design competitions, like FIRST Robotics and Destination Imagination. In these competitions you can conceptualize, design, build and test products such as the multi-terrain vehicle, Mini-Baja. Most of the projects are multidisciplinary in nature, with contributions from students from many academic disciplines including, engineering, business, science, and liberal arts.

Industrial giants Alcoa, Corning, General Electric, Kodak and Procter & Gamble are all proud sponsors of SPEED.

We invite you to learn more about the SPEED Projects, and encourage you to prepare for your future by joining one of the SPEED Teams.
