OUR MISSION

Unique Projects 

Impactful Projects — Our vehicles aren't just built to break world records. We strive to make a profound impact and challenge the status quo through innovative engineering driven by ambitious goals.  

 

From the ground up — We start every one of our projects from scratch. Students blaze their own trails as they learn the ins and outs of both technical engineering and business management across a full project's life cycle.  

 

Sustainability Focused — Through using alternative energy in our vehicles, PROVE Lab hopes to demonstrate the viability of clean energy and help pave the way for a renewable energy future.  

Student Team 

Student Lead - Freed from restrictive rule books, our team can make our project's visions uniquely our own. All aspects of project development are coordinated by students, from detailed technical designs and system engineering to sponsor acquisition and team management.  

 

Meaningful work from day 1 - Every member of PROVE is given the opportunity to excel, regardless of their experience, major, or background. The personal growth and development of our team's technical and soft skills is our top priority, and we ensure every member at PROVE Lab is given real responsibilities that align with their interests.  

 

Team Focused - Our projects are inherently interdisciplinary and require people from all skill sets to come together to create something truly extraordinary. We focus on developing friendships that exist both inside and outside of work, creating bonds and memories that will outlast our time together.  

Learn by Doing   

People wear many hats – Comprised of many complex interdependent challenges, our projects allow our students to branch out across multiple disciplines to become better multifaceted young professionals. These skills give us new perspectives on everyday issues, enabling our team to roll with the punches our projects throw in our way.

 

Unique problems require unique solutions - Breaking world records requires innovating new solutions to classic design problems. Oftentimes this pursuit pushes our team outside of our comfort zone, with occasionally mixed results. At PROVE lab we encourage a culture of growth, where the instructional value of failure is used to propel our projects forward and gain individual experience.  

 

Professional environment - Personal development lies at the heart of all PROVE Lab projects, and we work hard to ensure that every single member our team gains experience in their fields of interest.
