Team Testimonials

"UAB has been a great place to develop my creative design and project management skills. My team members were quick to show me the ropes regarding 3D modelling software before I learned it in class, as well as get involved in the design process. As someone who has a strong interest in anatomy and problem solving, I always look forward to meetings because I know I'll be learning something new!"
– Femi, Current Biomechanics Team Member

"Working in the Controls team allows me to brainstorm, design, and implement an entirely new software project from the ground - up. Having my original thoughts and ideas be used in the beginning stages of the software development for the exoskeleton is the most exciting thing for me as a member in the Controls team. Working alongside the rest of the Controls team gives me an opportunity to work on a project amongst amazing and dedicated people."
– Cyrus, current Control and Power Team Lead, former Control and Power Team Member
