November Highlights

  • We had our Critical Design Reviews last Sunday, where all the team leads gathered to discuss and critique each sub-team's designs as they enter their final design iterations
  • Each sub-team justified their engineering decisions through a variety of mediums
  • Below are some of our designs and simulations:
This is a new charger circuit board designed in Circuit Maker for the new battery management system (BMS), with a smaller overall footprint
Drivetrain assembly with all components, including the sponsored Zero Motorcycles motor!
Full car simulation from our newly developed Aerodynamics Sub-Team!
Full wheel package assembly, with topology optimization

Subteam Highlight - Chassis

  • Rujuta Munshi is one of our Chassis Leads for FE7, which means she designs and welds the whole chassis so it complies with the FSAE rules and it has the stiffness that the car needs!
  • She loves the hands-on manufacturing part of it and hopes to continue that in either the robotics or biotechnology industries in the future
  • When she's not welding, she loves to be outside hiking or baking to de-stress! 

    “Rujuta has a calculated risk taking personality and her presence always lifts the team upward. She tackles extremely difficult tasks at 110% effort with a smile. She is undeniably a key member of the team.”
    - Former Chassis lead, Will
