Yes

A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive program(s) offered by the institution:

The wind energy unit participates in an interdisciplinary collegiate wind competition that is two years in duration.  Students from across the TTU campus are provided information about the parts of a wind turbine along with their functions. Students then design a scaled turbine that can function on and off grid.  The student team develops a business market plan which they present with their turbine at the collegiate competition that provides evidence of how their project will benefit local communities both socially and economically.
