In addition, Cal State-Northridge won first-place prizes in competition categories for design and innovation, while also finishing in second place for endurance, men’s speed event, and women’s speed event. Twenty collegiate design teams participated in the international competition, held at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and sponsored by Siemens PLM.
Human powered vehicles are sleek pedal powered “super bikes” that challenge college engineering students to apply sound engineering principles in the design and fabrication of wheeled vehicles that must compete in speed, endurance and other tests.
The University of Nevada, Las Vegas, was the proud host of E-Fest West, one of three multi-day events that allow engineering students to showcase their technical skills while connecting them to thought leaders and practicing engineers for career advice and guidance.
