FAQ

What is the Time Commitment?

The team holds meetings every Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m. at the Center for Automotive Research. A workday takes place on every Sunday starting at noon and lasting several hours depending on your work group’s task load that week.

The time commitment ranges depending on your involvement on each project, but in general increases toward the end of each semester as we complete our design phase (fall) and build phase (spring).

How do I get there?

Because our main facilities are located off campus, our team carpools frequently. When you join the team, you will sign up for a messaging program where we arrange our shuttles. Until that time, whoever gets back to you via the contact form can help you work out transportation.
