A team of engineering students from Brigham Young University (BYU) in Utah have designed and built an electric car that now holds the world land speed record in its class. over two runs the car needed to average to 155.8 mph to qualify, which it did, in fact in one run the car topped out at 175 mph!
According to retired associate professor Perry Carter;
“This is a wonderful closure to 31 years of teaching at BYU and many projects. But this is the one that takes the cake. I’m done.”
He finished off by saying;
“Students who study music need to give concerts, students who study dance need to perform, and students who study engineering need to engineer things and compete to see how they work. Experiential education is a key aspect of every program.”
