The team will conduct research on a variety of engineering disciplines relating to the manufacturing of a comprehensive Hyperloop system including propulsion, structures, feedback & control, material science, electronics and electrical systems. In parallel, a business and civil engineering sub-team will determine the feasibility of implementing a hyperloop-type system in New York.

This project-based course will design, develop, manufacture and test a complete small-scale Hyperloop system. This system will be a representative model of a potential full-scale system to be implemented between New York City and Long Island. We aim to reduce our carbon footprint by eliminating automobile traffic and decreasing the amount of time spent in transit. This team will research implementation feasibility into the New York City area, both from an infrastructure perspective and a financial perspective.
