How to Join

*All in-person activity is currently on hold. If you would like to join the team, send an email to Tyler Green (green338@purdue.edu) and Dominic Nocon (dnocon@purdue.edu) and will get you added to our Microsoft Teams group so you can start getting involved!

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 students 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.

Weekly Meetings: Wednesdays 6:30 PM in ME 2061

SAE Shop: ME room G052 (in basement across from main entrance to old wing)


Senior Design

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.
