Design. Build. Test. Compete. Whether you’re interested in race cars or robotics, bridge design or aeronautics, joining one of the 14 project-based SPEED teams gives you the competitive edge for your future career while building lifelong friendships at the same time. Teams compete in national engineering competitions, have the opportunity to build multi-terrain vehicles from scratch, design bridges that can sustain 2,500 lbs, and create green engineering solutions.
And you don’t need engineering prowess to participate.
“Anyone interested can join a team,” says Bob Davis, Director of SPEED. “Teams benefit from a variety of expertise – business, accounting, engineering, building. If you’re motivated and ambitious, we want you on a SPEED team.”
Research, creativity and risk-taking are key aspects of the Clarkson SPEED teams. Students apply coursework to real world problem solving and design, which prepares them for industry once they graduate. The skill set cultivated during these exciting projects are highly sought after by global corporations.
