BLUElab's mission is to develop a community of students who serve society and the environment through the practice of sustainable design.
Better Living Using Engineering (BLUElab) acts as an incubator for eight project teams. Each team works with stakeholders to address identified needs. Areas of focus include water accessibility, solar technology, resource management in buildings, anaerobic digestion, engineering education, and wind powered technology. Each project team works with a partner community in Ann Arbor or internationally, in Mexico, Guatemala, Jamaica, India, or Nicaragua. We offer students the opportunity to home their inter and intrapersonal skills, engage in social responsibility, participate in an interactive design experience, and develop as servant leaders.
