5. QL+ Student Association Announcements


QL+ SA is a multidisciplinary student run association dedicated to improving the lives of those in need. We run a variety of developmental workshops and projects throughout the year to support engineering students. This quarter, we’ll be hosting a quarterly design project, as well as a few workshops and socials. 


Our general meetings are every Tuesday from 6-7PM in our lab in building 192. 


Quarterly Design Project

Our quarterly design project is an opportunity for students to experience what it’s like to work on an engineering project with a team. Unfortunately we can not accommodate any further signups. 


Call for Challengers

The QL+ mission is to foster and generate innovations to aid and improve the quality of life of those injured in the line of duty.


QL+ is currently seeking challenges for the 2017/18 school year.  These challenges can originate from a specific person with a challenge.  They can also be generated based on a need of many in the veteran community. 


If you know of a challenger or would like to propose a senior level project for consideration we would like to hear from you. By proposing an idea it would allow you to potentially design a project based on your interest.


Please feel free to email me at sabrina.jenkins@qlplus.org



We have two coed intramural teams this quarter! 

Indoor Volleyball on Sunday evening and Flag Football on Tuesday evening. If you're interested in playing please email us for more information!
