Texas Tech collaborating in Collegiate Wind Competitors

Texas Tech University is one of 13 institutions with a team virtually competing in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Collegiate Wind Competition, which runs June 2-11. The competition helps prepare college students for jobs in the clean energy economy by providing hands-on, real-world wind energy technology and project development experience.


“Texas Tech’s Collegiate Wind Team, Techsan Wind, is excited to be a part of the 2021 Collegiate Wind Competition,” said Matt Saldaña, the team’s adviser and an instructor of wind energy. “Techsan Wind also will compete in the 2022 Collegiate Wind Competition. We look forward to improving on our past performances as well as being a part of such a prestigious competition.”

This is the fourth time the Techsan Wind team has participated in the competition. Many of Techsan Wind’s team members are enrolled in Texas Tech’s Bachelor of Science in Wind Energy program, which is offered through the College of Arts & Sciences.
