Project Team: Cornell FSAE Racing

Design, Build, and Win!

My name is Shota, and I am a sophomore mechanical engineering student at Cornell Engineering student ShotaCornell. I am here today to discuss one of the biggest reasons why I decided to attend this school. More specifically, I am writing to talk about Cornell FSAE Racing Team! Some people may refer to us as “Cornell Racing” or “FSAE” as well. Our team competes in a collegiate level design competition hosted by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) each year. Furthermore, we design, build, test, and race an electric formula-style race car all from scratch with the various resources that we have access to. Some of the systems on the car that we design and manufacture include the: suspension, carbon fiber monocoque, aerodynamic wings, and 420V high voltage battery that powers the car. Our team motto is: Design, Build, and Win!

Spotlight: Mechanical Engineering

A photo of Cornell Engineering student KennyHello!  My name is Kenny and I am a senior Mechanical Engineering major from Palo Alto, CA.  I am currently a team lead on Cornell Baja Racing, a project team that designs and builds off-road buggies to race against other collegiate teams.  I am also part of a research lab in the Space Systems Design Studio on a team building a small sat that will be traveling to lunar orbit on the inaugural flight of NASA’s SLS.  During my junior year I also participated in Cornell’s engineering co-op program, spending eight consecutive months working on satellite hardware at SpaceX. My favorite place on campus is the Experiential Learning Lab which is in the basement of Upson Hall.  Its home to a majority of the project team workspaces and the Emerson Machine Shop where my Baja team machines most of the parts on our car.  The ELL also home to Autolab, an automotive garage workspace where we do all our welding and assembly.

Why I chose Cornell Engineering

A photo of Cornell Engineering student MadelineI specifically chose Cornell Engineering for three reasons: the students, curriculum, and project teams. When I visited Cornell and went on tours, I also attended a physics class. I immediately noticed that the students were passionate about what they were learning. Not only that, but they were eager to support others. Even though the students are all trying to get the best grade as possible, I noticed that they are still willing to go out of their way to help their peers.

My Experience with Project Team Cornell Cup Robotics

Cornell Engineering studnet StanleyGoing to college isn’t only about the classes that one can take, it’s also about the opportunities that one can pursue outside of class. Luckily, Cornell has no shortage of these opportunities. As a freshman engineer, I remember being overwhelmed by all the activities and teams that were available; having just arrived, I wasn’t expecting to have such a wide selection of opportunities immediately available to me. But I took advantage of it, and joined one of the project teams, called Cornell Cup Robotics.

Is Cornell somewhere I can be successful?

One of my favorite spots on campus to study is in the Experiential Learning Lab (ELL). Most engineers on campus have come to know the ELL to be the home of many project teams, including mine, Cornell University Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (CUAUV).

Like most other project team members, if you ask me if I love my experience on my project team I would reply “yes” followed by “oh, and our application link is here, you definitely should apply!”. I, like many others, love my team. And even more so, I adore all of the activities I am involved with on campus.

Campus organizations are an integral part of the Cornell experience. However, as a Senior who has transitioned from an interviewee to an interviewer for many of my own organizations, I find it hard not to discuss my own experiences for how I ended up where I am today.
