This handbook is designed to support students in setting up, navigating, and succeeding in hybrid engineering teams. Hybrid engineering teams are those whose work combines both virtual and in-person components.

Access the handbook here, and share with collaborators and friends.

Through this handbook, we wish to enable teams to adopt strategies and practices so that they can be equally as effective in virtual and hybrid teams as they are when working fully in person.


"Teamwork is never equal to the sum of the parts that go into it. It is always equal to more or less. Building an effective team environment is step one to making it equal to more."
