This is the Official Homepage of the Missouri S&T Solar Car Team. Our goal is to design, build, and race solar electric vehicles. We are a student run organization that promotes multidisciplinary work between engineering and non-engineering related fields to give students an experience of design and going into competition. Through collaborative work between our forty members and four faculty advisors, we aim to combine new technologies and engineering principles into a vehicle that is efficient and reliable in order to participate in national and world competitions.
With a new build cycle and new team members, our main focus this year will be to design a new vehicle that will be competitive in future events. After not competing for three years, the team managed to get Solar Miner VIII in working condition and placed seventh in Formula Sun Grand Prix 2014. We face a new challenge of designing a new car that is completely different from its predecessors and creating a legacy for years to come for new members of the team.
The team is comprised into four sub teams that are specialized in order for the team to operate smoothly; including the Mechanical, Electrical, Race Logistics, and Business sub teams.
Without the support of our sponsors and the Student Design Center, we would not be able to move forward as a team and create a new vehicle that would provide our team members with the experience they need for the future. Thank you!
