2023 SAE Competition


SAMPE Conference 2023

Seattle, Washington

Get involved in a club (especially WWU Racing) or activity in the engineering department. It’s the best way to get hands on experience and learn from students outside your major, which will make you that much more valuable when entering the workforce. Also, understand how lucky you are to be in a program that is to focused on lab based work.
