2018 SAE Supermileage Car (B.Eng. Final Year Project)
As a final year project for my Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering, my team and I have built a supermileage vehicle that entered the 2018 SAE competition. As a Design Engineer, my contributions to the project involved the design of the vehicle, the monocoque, and its subsystems (seat, axle mounts, roll hoop, etc..), as well as the vehicle's aerodynamics. This gallery allows you to follow the chronological development of the project.
