Team Structure

Teams’ internal functions are independently operated. Teams are required to nominate a Team Captain and a Safety Officer to oversee their operation. Teams may create additional executive positions to suit their individual needs. Teams may develop their own internal governance documents to serve the needs of their team and to ensure continued success. 

Examples of Team Governance Documents

Teams meet and work during the week as well as on weekends. Work hours are agreed upon internally, to conform to student schedules and resource availability. 

Each summer, there is an EDT Registration Form (otherwise known as the Super Application) that must be filled out. The EDT Coordinator will make this form available in July and it is due at midnight on August 31.

Safety Training & General Space Access

Each Team’s Captain, Treasurer and Safety Officer are required to complete the annual Training for Engineering Student Leaders (TESL) which will include training pertaining to leadership, bullying and harassment prevention, team management, and of course, safety. In addition, team captains must attend the safety presentation session and an in-person space walkthrough with the Applied Science Safety and Facilities Officer at the Symposium. Safety Officers will also be required to train the remaining members of their team. 

Space Access Requirement Details

Teams are required to maintain documentation of their members’ training. This documentation is to be provided annually to the Engineering Design Team Coordinator and should be readily available upon request of the Safety and Facilities Officer, Engineering Design Team Coordinator, Student Development Coordinator, or Faculty Advisor.
