Clarkson diesel sled is one of many SPEED (Student Projects for Engineering Experience and Design) project teams offered at Clarkson University for undergraduate and graduate students. Using the engineering skills of Clarkson students, our goal is to create a cleaner, quieter, and more fuel efficient snowmobile for the average consumer. Being an almost 100% student run team, we are able to fully experience a professional engineering environment, while still being able to lean on Clarkson staff for guidance.
Our team has been competing in the Clean Snowmobile SAE Challenge since 2001. We are made up of mostly mechanical engineers but accept anyone from any major that wants to learn valuable skills about design, mechanics, and teamwork. Every member of our team helps in achieving the overall goals of the SAE clean snowmobile challenge.
