Available Positions

While we have listed a series of specific positions, we are always looking for new members of any discipline. Just send us an email and we’ll try our best to find a place for you on the team!

Engineering and Design

We are always looking for new members from any engineering discipline. Students outside of engineering such as computer science or physics students are always welcome to join the team. Though we invite those from any discipline or faculty below is an outline of some the tasks members perform under the two different broad design teams. Individual learning and contributions to the design is up to the individual.
