Our team is an entirely student run project team that designs, builds, and races the world's fastest solar vehicles. With four engineering divisions; mechanical, electrical, aerodynamics, and strategy, as well as operations and business divisions, our team brings together students from a multitude of backgrounds and disciplines to work together towards a common goal: build the best solar vehicle possible. We look forward to competing this October at the 2019 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge!


Our Legacy

Our team is an entirely student-run organization that designs, builds and races world-class solar vehicles. We compete at both the National and International level, and since our establishment in 1989, we have built 14 vehicles. We have won the American Solar Challenge nine times, placed third in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge five times, and won our first international championship in the 2015 Abu Dhabi Solar Challenge. In 2017, we had our best World Solar Challenge finish yet, placing second! We look forward to building on the team’s legacy this October as we race to claim the title of best in the world!
