The Center for Wind Energy engages undergraduates in wind-related capstone projects to increase wind energy education. Students in the ISAT program have been doing these types of projects since 1999.

In 2017, two capstone teams advised by Dr. Miles and the Center for Wind Energy, presented their research at the 2017 JMU Senior Capstone Project Symposium. Abstract Link.
