The 2013 UTC Mini-Baja team traveled to Auburn this weekend to test a prototype of the suspension that has been chosen during Conceptual Design for this years car. Click on the link below to watch a short clip of a jump with one of the cars.

The College of Engineering and Computer Science along with the SimCenter at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, UTC has proposed a project that would target the improvement of children’s understanding of wind power generation by interacting with a model wind farm. As a part of the senior design course, ENGR 3850 offered by UTC a project team was formed. The team will study the power generation of wind and develop a scaled model of a wind farm. Therefore the purpose of the project is to design and construct a scaled model wind farm that will be easily transported in a compact hatchback vehicle, simulate the cause and effects of a wind farm, and stimulate STEM K-12 education. The first milestone for the team was to develop a conceptual design for the project. The conceptual design was proposed to the technical advisor, the client, the dean, and the professor. The design was done by breaking the work into three different sections. These sections are laid out as the base, the fan, and the turbine. Once a design for each component was picked by the team, the next task was to develop a complete unit design that incorporates all three components and satisfied the purpose of the project.
The wind farm team for UTC 3850 includes Lindsay Taylor, Josh Ware, Clint Clayton, Nick Johnson, Davin Rieman, Stephen Rue, Ashley Poe, and Jamie West.

UTC Engineering students compete in the Baja SAE. Baja SAE is a series of collegiate design competitions hosted by the Society of Automotive Engineers every year. For this competitions the students are to build a 4-wheel, off-road vehicle that can endure different types of testing. During the competitions the car is tested for different performances such as acceleration, maneuverability, and endurance. This project is undertaken by the students as their Graduation project in the engineering courses 3850 and 4850. To find out more about the SAE and Baja competitions click here.
The students that are part of the 2012-2013 Racing Mocs are: Amjad Abdullah,Matthew Addison, Jared Baker, Justin Cartwright, Corey Cresswell, Casey Dillon, Christopher Hawk, Maria Juliana Loza, Khanh Nguyen, Brandon Rodgers, and Emily Stark.
