Hyperloop Pod Competition is held by SpaceX first time in 2015. The competition’s goal is to support the development of functional prototypes and encourage innovation by challenging student teams to design and build the best high-speed pod. The competition was judged solely on one criteria: maximum speed with successful deceleration (i.e. without crashing).

Engineering Design Team teams up with the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers to represent the University of Illinois at Chicago Hyperloop team.

This year, the University of Illinois at Chicago Hyperloop team collaborates with the Illinois Institue of Technology to be prepared for SpaceX 2020 Hyperloop Pod Competition. Participating in the team, you will gain knowledge and experience while working on an interesting project that can add to the future of transportation.

UIC Hyperloop team works in three separate sections: Levitation, Electronics, and Structures. If you’re inexperienced, we will be providing educational workshops to prepare members to join our core teams.

Meeting Schedule:

  • Levitation and Structures: Friday at 6:00 pm
  • Electronics: Wednesday at 6:00 pm
