"Progress, requires collaboration and innovation."
Welcome to Next Gen Engineering
Next Gen Engineering, is a student led multidisciplinary engineering organization, with the goal of: collaboration, innovation, and STEM outreach.
Established in 2020
Next Gen Engineering was established during the summer of 2020.
Our team wants to collaborate, innovate, and provide solutions to real problems, while also providing others the opportunity to engage with STEM so that they can find their desire to provide world changing solutions.
Projects are key to providing students and members of our community the opportunity to collaborate, innovate, and problem solve. The projects that will be shared here will be multidisciplinary in nature, and will hopefully inspire others to trail blaze their own path towards innovation through solving real world problems.
Our group's goal is to inspire and promote collaboration and innovation in STEM through the Annual National Design Challenge and other projects. We hope that by providing these opportunities to student groups, students will be able to engage with the STEM field in a meaningful way. The outcomes of all the completed projects will be posted on, where the projects can be shared with college and high school students to encourage them to engage in the STEM field as well.
How it started
Project Re-Mask started in March of 2020 in response to the effect caused by COVID-19 in rural and underserved communities. Our team's goal was to develop a cost-effective and easily replicable device to allow for the re-use of N-95 masks in Non-Academic Health Science Centers (Rural hospitals, remote providers, volunteer community emergency services, and underserved communities). It is our hope that the designs shared on this site will allow for the mitigation of a PPE mask shortage at any level of a community.
