Senior Design

As a senior design team, Frontier Wheelchairs has partnered with Hope Haven International in Antigua, Guatemala, to improve wheelchair designs to serve the needs of wheelchair users.

Led by Norman Reese, the project allows students to go through the whole engineering design process, from interacting with the "customer" and developing design concepts, to getting hands-on experience building their own wheelchair.

The SAE Mini Baja Project is an international, collegiate competition that requires students design, build, and race an off-road vehicle. SAE gives specific guidelines that each team must follow in order to compete.

Competition results are based on the design, cost, and performance of each vehicle. Teams are entirely student based with the exception of a faculty advisor.
