UBC WASTENAUTS

ENGINEERING DESIGN TEAM

OUR VISION

To create a zero-waste future, ensuring a circular economy

We, at UBC WasteNauts Engineering Design Team, believe in recognizing and nurturing the potential of positive change-makers of tomorrow. We do this in two ways - technical and holistic development. Our sub-teams take stakeholder collaboration to the next level from Day-0 and only work towards projects with a tangible community benefit. They also abide by the philosophy of circular economy and the pillars of sustainable development. Our executive team constantly works on improving UBC student experience through initiatives in the form of engagement activities, fostering an atmosphere of inclusivity, and a combination of technical & non-technical training.
