Undergraduate Student

Slater Wingate

Major: Sustainable Biomaterials

Expected Graduation Date: May 2016

  • Minor: Industrial Design

I originally came to Virginia Tech in the mechanical engineering program with the intention to work in product development and research and development. I have since learned that mechanical engineering is not the major for me. I then learned about the Department of Sustainable Biomaterials as well as the industrial design minor and have spent the past year tailoring my academic experience toward the sustainable design world. I have great prototyping experience as well as computer modeling skills. I also love the outdoors and go on adventure trips whenever I can afford to.
