UBC WasteNauts is a solution-driven transdisciplinary design team that encompasses sustainability in engineering design and principles of a circular economy. Our goal is to radically minimize waste and apply knowledge from all fields to transform that waste into a valuable resource. Our projects are driven by the coolest and most cutting-edge innovations that abide by the three pillars of sustainability. We provide hands-on experience with power tools, materials testing, and additive manufacturing. Our team consists of multiple sub-teams working on a wide range of projects at any given time, so chances are we will have something that appeals to everyone. We also provide unparalleled opportunity for professional development, including the chance to pitch your own project ideas and lead your own sub-teams within one term!
UBC WasteNauts is separate from Melt Collective. WasteNauts is a new Engineering Design Team, with a keen interest in sustainable engineering. We are always looking for excited students to help us build and design new products.
