Team Structure

The team is divided into two groups of subsystems, mechanical and electrical. Our 50 members may be working/living/contributing in any of these subteams.

  • group4 Executive Positions

    The electrical and software leads manage the electrical systems necessary for the car to function.

    The chief engineer takes care of the mechanical systems and manages topics ranging from aerodynamics to frame design and packaging.

    The captain monitors the progress of the enitre team. On the nontechnical side, the captain directs a business team and a publicity team.

  • settings13 Mechanical Subteams

      Each subteam is lead by one member elected at the end of the previous year. They and the rest of the subteam is responsible for designing and manufacturing their part of the car. Each subteam works independently but together they all work to achieve a rolling chassis.

  • ev_station2 Electrical Subteams

    Members of these subteams develops all the electronics and software necessary for the car to accelerate and drive during the competition. They divide up labor corresponding to separate projects and report back to their respective EE and CS lead.

    The Electrical team designs and fabricates our custom dashboard, power electronics, battery management, vehicle control, and sensor boards.

    The Software team programs all embedded systems on the car. Subteams also design and implement telemetry, post-processing, and control algorithms.

  • assignment2 Administrative Divisions

    The Business division manages the team's funds, overlooking all purchases made by the team and handling donations. With all this knowledge, they prepare for the cost static event at competition.

    The Publicity division manages the website and social media of the team.
