The Alternative Energy Enterprise is a multidisciplinary, student-run company out of the Chemical Engineering department at Michigan Tech. Our goal is to create or improve technologies to create a sustainable future where our energy needs are met via carbon-neutral sources, lowering our carbon footprint and allowing for energy independence in local communities.
Starting out focusing on biofuels (a team which AEE is still proud to have actively running tests,) we have branched out to include geothermal heat, solar power, and sustainability, not only to follow the interests of our students, but to meet the growing demand for engineers and scientists with a familiarity with alternative energy technology.
As we continue to grow, we are constantly on the look out for team members with new ideas for projects that would be a good fit for our enterprise and are willing to work with members on the projects they would like to see built by AEE. We welcome any and all majors to contact us or visit our meetings in room 211 of the Chemical Engineering building at 4pm on Tuesdays.
