Texas Tech University’s National Wind Institute (NWI) is based on a strong foundation of more than 40 years of research and education on the impact of wind on structures and human life.
To bring together All Things Wind, TTU has created the NWI to better support the interdisciplinary research and educational opportunities in wind science, engineering and energy. The institute combines the former Wind Science and Engineering (WiSE) Research Center and the Texas Wind Energy Institute (TWEI) into one entity to support the overall wind enterprise at Texas Tech University.
For All Things Wind, consider TTU’s National Wind Institute.
