Student Design Competition

The WEAT Student Design Competition gives college students the opportunity to design and present a project based on a real world wastewater plant design task, which could be dealing with increased flows, nutrient limitations, aging facilities, or other treatment challenges. Students compete to represent WEAT at the WEFTEC Student Design Competition in New Orleans at WEFTEC 2018. This year there a record 8 teams competed, including student groups from Texas Tech, Southern Methodist University, Texas A&M University, LeTourneau University, Louisiana State University, and Tarleton. This is a great opportunity to see tomorrow’s industry leaders!
