Initial Team Entry: Please complete this form with the name of every member of your team. The first 5 roles are required (Faculty Advisor, CEO, Chief Safety Officer, Business Development Director, and Chief Engineer). The remaining roles and responsibilities are suggestions, based on industrial team roles and responsibilities. Team members may be listed without a role and responsibility, but we encourage all team members to identify what their roles are and how they will contribute to the team effort.
Subsequent Team Updates: Team composition will naturally evolve over time as some student leave, others join, and others change roles within the team. At every interim update and report submission point, teams must submit an updated team roster as part of their submission package. It is the CEO's (overall team leader's) responsibility to maintain a current student roster. As the team evolves, please be sure to update the team member status. All past and present team members should be included on the roster. The team member status can be listed as Active, Withdrawn, Graduated and active, Graduated and withdrawn, Apprentice (list affiliation under student name).
