Engineering Manager, Kaveh Jamshidi, Joins UBC Engineering Co-Op as Project Mentor

RAM’s Engineering Manager, Kaveh Jamshidi, P.Eng., PMP, will be joining UBC Engineering Co-op‘s program as Project Mentor for the “Capturing Roadside Wind Energy” project as part of the program’s Experiential Learning Project Course. He will be mentoring four (4) UBC Engineering Students over the course of 8 weeks.

Detailed Project Summary:

In this project, students will assess the feasibility of utilizing wind produced by passing vehicles in roads/highways and converting it to electricity via a vertical axis wind turbine. Students must develop a detail feasibility report that will address the full life cycle integration of a wind energy system that converts roadside wind to electricity. The designed wind system must meet BC road and highway regulations.

Project Deliverables:

Deliverables include a Feasibility Report and Digital Presentation Poster
