Student Design Teams Make the Difference!

UA’s highly regarded student design teams allow students at all levels to apply classroom theory to a major design project. Our design teams consistently rank highly in national and international competitions. Students have the opportunity to join any of several interdisciplinary student groups that engineer and compete in design competitions against other schools. Design teams include:

  • Formula-style race cars
  • Concrete canoes
  • Radio-controlled aircraft
  • Alternative energy vehicles
  • Steel bridges
  • Baja-style, off-road race cars
  • Innovative energy systems »
  • Supermileage vehicles
  • Robotics
  • Chemical reaction-powered cars

"Being part of Zips Racing gave me the hands-on skills I needed to go out into the workplace and perform as an engineer – and as a leader."  - Dan Lough, B.S. mechanical engineering, '12
