In some inaccessible areas, human-powered transport plays an essential role for daily commuting transportation. When you apply engineering principles to human-powered vehicles, they can be a increasingly efficient and reliable transportation for undeveloped areas. Furthermore, human powered vehicles are a promising green transportation alternative for urban localities.The HPVC is an international event held by ASME and provides students a chance to practice engineering design principles to innovate a reliable and practical alternate form of transportation. Throughout the challenge, students will be developing efficient, sustainable, and highly engineered vehicles to overcome the predicted constraints.
The UT Dallas chapter of ASME is looking forward to compete again for the second time in 2013.
We hold meetings every Sunday at 3:00pm.
Meet us in the old CAD lab if you would like to help: ECSN 2.330.

Our Results Last Year
UTD ASME participated in the Human Powered Vehicle Competition for the first time in 2012.
We had a strong showing and plan on improving in the years to come.
Our Placement was:
Women's Speed: 9th out of 17
Men's Speed: 4th out of 17
Endurance: 7th out of 17
Design: 15th out of 19
