Meet the Teams & Clubs
In Chem-E Car Club, you'll design and build a model car that operates via chemical mechanisms in this club that participates in AIChE’s regional competition each year. Cars drive a fixed distance carrying a certain payload--both of which are decided the day of the competition. Teams are judged based on how far the car is from the finish line.
Concrete Canoe is a club that welcomes students of all majors and knowledge levels who have an interest in designing a concrete canoe to race against teams from other schools. The team designs the concrete mix, the reinforcement within the concrete, the mold used to make the canoe and the shape of the canoe, before racing in the ASCE Great Lakes Competition each year.
Design/Build/Fly is an international competition in which students from more than 50 colleges and universities design, build and fly a remote controlled aircraft. Every year new design challenges require the complete design, fabrication and performance testing of a new aircraft.
The team consists of students from a variety of engineering disciplines who are looking for a challenge and real-world application of classroom concepts.
First Robotics Team 5188
Rose-Hulman’s FIRST Robotics 5188 team works with Vigo County high school students to provide hands on experience in the STEM fields while having fun. The club mentors a local high school FRC team, Area 5188: Classified Robotics. We teach high school students how to design, build, and code a 120-pound robot in only six weeks! Visit our Facebook or Instagram pages to learn more.
Make It Happen
Students of all majors have the chance to put their knowledge to work on humanitarian projects and get course credit for it in the Make It Happen program. This unique program encourages cross-disciplinary collaboration to solve real-world problems.
The Rose Rocketry team provides a forum for students to interact with the field of aerospace, specifically in the context of rocketry, to further their technical and experiential understanding of the central topics in this field, and to have an organization in which to develop their teamwork, leadership, and competence as an individual, as a student, and as an engineer. The club is participating in NASA’s 2022 Student Launch, a nine-month challenge providing realistic experiences for college students following the engineering design process used by NASA and industry engineers for space exploration.
The team has competed for more than 10 years, first in the International Aerial Robotics Competition, now in the Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition and MATE-ROV (remotely operated underwater vehicle) challenge.
The Robotics team also volunteers in outreach programs such as Blue Key's Youth Science Day, Botball, Explore Engineering and First Lego League.
Rose Grand Prix Engineering
Rose-Hulman Grand Prix Engineering is a team operated entirely by students, which has the aim of developing young engineers outside the classroom through designing, manufacturing and racing formula-style cars.
The end goal is to compete in the Formula SAE competition, which integrates student innovation, ingenuity, team cooperation and the application of design processes.
Rose-Hulman Efficient Vehicle
The objective of the Rose-Hulman Efficient Vehicles Team is to maximize fuel economy in a single person vehicle created to compete against other schools and teams in contests such as the SAE Supermileage competition and Shell Eco-Marathon.
The team gives students an opportunity to learn about and participate in the design and construction of a fuel efficient vehicle.
Team Rose Motorsports
Hands-on automotive repair, design and fabrication experience through the maintenance and preparation of racecars is central to the team.
Additionally, members can build their knowledge of automobiles and high-performance driving through operating these vehicles in sanctioned competitions in the surrounding area.
I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success.
