Mechanical Engineering - ME210 - Dragsters
Student teams taking ME 210 Manufacturing and Design, a required course for sophomore mechanical engineering majors, competed in a year end drag race.The semester long project challenges students to design a dragster using engineering analysis so that it can race down a track and come to a stop after crossing the finish line. The competition winner is determined by a combination of speed, braking, and manufacturing cost for the car. Students used a combination of the machine shop and 3D printers to manufacture their dragsters. Associate professor Jeff Helm served as announcer and MC for the race day event.
