Our team of more than 60 undergraduate and graduate students come from diverse backgrounds and studies across our McCormick School of Engineering as well as the broader Northwestern community.
The design and construction of our car is an aggressive practicum, allowing students to take their coursework into application and sharpen their skills. Our work routinely runs ahead of classes, encouraging freshmen to acquire knowledge of material covered in senior-level coursework, while offering upperclassmen the opportunity to mentor and engage team members.
Our members pursue a wide range of majors, and many see their time on the team translate to expanded expertise beyond their usual coursework. We have taught economists how to weld, literary scholars how to solder, and industrial engineers how to code. With an emphasis on inclusion through education, we value diligence and curiosity in experts and novices alike.
