All students are welcome to join the team, from all majors and with any experience level. We have technical projects ranging from embedded electronics to aerodynamics, including a variety of non-technical projects for our competition, such as a marketing presentation and cost analysis.
We recommend that any interested student come to a team meeting as soon as possible and introduce themselves to the team leadership. If you have a desire to work in a specific area, be sure to mention that area.
Our team spends Thursday evenings (6-9pm), Friday evenings (6-9pm), and Saturdays (9am-6pm) working in computer labs, ME machine shop, and SAE shop. Join the email list to stay updated with team events and organization.
Weekly Meetings: Thursdays 6:00 PM in ME 2061
SAE Shop: ME room G052 (in basement across from main entrance to old wing)
The senior design option allows ME students the opportunity to earn 6 credits over two semesters. The student will take 3 credits in a technical elective in the fall semester and 3 credits of a senior design in the spring. Thus, the student must graduate in the spring, and must be on campus in the fall as well. In order to ensure a successful senior design experience, we ask that prospective senior design students be an active member of the FSAE team at least 2 semesters prior to their senior year. Certain exceptions can be made if the requests are made in a timely fashion. Come to a team meeting as soon as possible.
