Hornet Racing - Formula SAE

Formula SAE is perhaps the highest profile, most intense student Mechanical Engineering design competition in the world. To compete in Formula SAE, students must conceive, design, and manufacture an open-wheeled, formula-style racecar. Restrictions are put on the design of the engine and frame in order to challenge the students knowledge, creativity, and imagination. The cars are built by teams of students over a period of about one year, and are taken to Pontiac, Michigan to compete with 140 other Universities from across the world. The end result is a great experience for young engineers to take part in a meaningful design project, as well as to learn to work as a team.

Cross-Discipline Clubs & Orgs

Competitive Robotics

The Competitive Robotics Club is focused on designing, building, and programming robots for various competitions. The projects that our club works on include, but are not limited to: drones, battle bots, problem-solving robots, and mechanical arms. Working on these projects will gives students the opportunity to learn and develop a variety of technical and non-technical skills.

Some of the technical skills that students will gain include programming, circuit design, mechanical engineering, and control systems. They also have the opportunity to work on non-technical skills such as teamwork, leadership, communication, and project management.

By participating in the club's activities and projects, students gain hands-on experience in the field of robotics and engineering, preparing them for future academic and professional endeavors.
