The University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering student organization, Innovative Engineers, was established to provide students with opportunities to apply engineering skills taught at the University in a way that will address the current environmental and energy problems globally. 

The organization focuses on extending the reach of renewable energy to the developing world by providing communities with the technology and know-how necessary to create and maintain a sustainable energy infrastructure using locally-available materials.
