Brianne Giangiobbe '16 and Doron Geer '16 get their dragster to the starting line. Student teams from the Manufacturing and Design 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. The course was taught by Matt Rhudy, visiting assistant professor of mechanical engineering. Chuck Zovko/Zovko Photographic llc May 12, 2014
