Pedal to the Metal: Engineering Students Compete in Drag Race

Student teams from the Manufacturing and Design course competed in a year-end drag race. The project challenges mechanical engineering 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 winner is determined by a combination of speed, braking, and manufacturing cost.  The course was taught by Matt Rhudy, visiting assistant professor of mechanical engineering.
