Every year our team goes to Houghton, Michigan to compete against colleges nationwide. The competition lasts for one week in March where we run our sled through several different events. The goal is to have the cleanest and quietest snowmobile that can still perform as a utility sled. During competition you are able to view each teams sled and see the unique ideas and engineering each team brings to the competition. Everyone at competition is very friendly and share the same passion about learning and engineering. The competition also holds a career fair during the week where big companies like Polaris, Cummins, Ford, Milwaukee Tool etc. send representatives to come see the work and ideas that we have. In past competitions, many companies have been very impressed with students and have offered some interviews and even jobs following the competition. It’s great for networking and showing off our ability to work well in a team to achieve a goal.
