ABOUT

Active since 2006, SENEA is a student organization at the University of Tulsa that connects sustainable and alternative energy technologies with the global community. We promote the research, development, and implementation of engineering projects that directly improve the quality of life for impoverished people.

Our initiatives are accomplished by students who are committed to helping people with true needs. Typically an academic year has students researching technologies, building prototypes, and journeying abroad to conduct engineering assessments.

Summers can be spent on campus continuing research, or at project cites building useable technologies that have been proven successful through prototyping. Working in conjunction with the needs and desires of our overseas contacts, SENEA focuses on research projects that can be directly implemented in the locations we are targeting.

Membership is open to any student, faculty, alumni, or staff member of the University of Tulsa. While most of our projects are engineering focused, we welcome anyone who would like to work on the educational and cultural side of what we do.
