******************************************************************************

- In the spring and fall of 2016, approximately 350 K-12 students participated in Technology Engineering Aptitude events hosted by Ferris to learn about the numerous career opportunities available in engineering related degrees. As part of the curriculum, the students participated in a variety of activities such as designing hovercrafts, building catapults for a mini competition, creating “helmets” to protect eggs, and many engaged with a panel of female students from the College of Engineering Technology.
- In late April 2016, the College of Engineering Technology (CET) hosted its first annual Recognition Dinner to celebrate the women within the college. Students, faculty, and staff from across CET were invited to submit nominations for awards, and the following exceptional individuals received awards:
Outstanding Nontraditional Student Award: Quincee Denault
Nontraditional Student Rising Star Award: Megan Cramer
Nontraditional Student Community Service Award: Stacie Larson
Nontraditional Exceptional Support: Mr. Larry Langell
Outstanding Nontraditional Advocate: Ms. Suzanne Miller
- Kaylie Bohn, an outstanding student from the Industrial Electronics program was nominated and selected by the State of Michigan to receive a Breaking Traditions Merit award. Congratulations, Kaylie!
- Thanks to a grant awarded by the Michigan STEM Partnership and coordination by the local Math/Science/Technology Center at the Mecosta-Osceola Intermediate School District, several area schools were able to learn coding and robotics through clubs at their schools. They were invited to participate in a competition at Ferris in February, 2016 and were challenged to code their robots to complete various tasks. Over 40% of the participants were females, and the first place team was comprised primarily of young women as well. Many student volunteers made the event possible too from the programs of Construction Management and HVACR and student organizations including the Mechanical Service Contractors of America and Women in Technology.
- On May 2, 2016, Professor Suzanne Miller and University Career Programs Specialist Leigha Compson were invited to a television interview at the WOOD TV 8 studio in Grand Rapids, Michigan to discuss opportunities for women in nontraditional fields.

~ At the October Board of Trustees meeting the renovation of the first floor of the five-story Swan Building was approved. The approved amount not to exceed $2.5 million includes renovating the entire first floor for Mechanical Engineering Technology, Energy Systems, Architecture, and Facilities Management. The plan is to start this renovation in late spring and have it completed by August 1, 2017. Some of our projects do not include any ongoing University dollars. For example, the Swan Annex renovation includes $22.5 million from the State for this one purpose, and we have a fundraising campaign underway for much of the rest of it. It will include a few one-time university funds. This project is a wonderful opportunity to greatly enhance programmatic spaces for Welding Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing with the University paying one fourth the cost. Welding also has a two year waiting list for students wanting to get into the program.
~ Sehi Computer Products donated 40 HP 8200 computers and flat screen monitors to the Heavy Equipment Center Computer Labs.

Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

~ A collaborative team of four construction management students and two architecture students took third place at the Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) Region 3 design-build competition held on October 14-17, 2015, in Downers Grove, IL. The project involved a preliminary design, a cost estimate, a schedule, and site logistics for a mixed use student residential units, retail, and parking facility on a fictitious campus near St. Louis, MO. The Ferris team, including Construction Management students Maycee Robinson (senior) , Matthey Barrons (junior), Aaron Rustem (sophomore), and Julia Tisdale (sophomore) and Architecture students Meghann Zmuda (senior) and Riley Manier (junior), was coached by Suzanne Miller (Construction Management), Chris Cosper (Architecture), and Joe Pacella (HVACR).

~ Celebration Pavilion
The City of Big Rapids and community leaders, along with Welding faculty Dave Murray and our Welding Engineering Technology students, participated in a ribbon-cutting to honor the completion of the Celebration Pavilion located in Mitchell Creek Park. This is the latest in many artistic contributions our Welding students have built for the Big Rapids community, including sculptures in front of City Hall, next to the Riverwalk, as you enter the community from US 131 and next to the hospital. All are wonderful examples of collaboration and cooperation between our University, the City of Big Rapids, local artists, and private business and industry.

Under Dave Murray’s direction, our Welding students invested thousands of hours of effort in creating and installing the 25-foot diameter, 23-foot high steel structure. Marlies Manning, local landscape architect, designed the artwork for the laser cut aluminum dome which beautifully tells the story of the Big Rapids community enjoying the four seasons and all our area has to offer. Inscribed on the inside is a quote from Mother Teresa, “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”

This project exemplifies how the University is a place where theory meets practice for our students and also demonstrates the increasing international nature of our educational programs. The students who constructed this are not only from Michigan and throughout the Midwest, but also from Botswana and Saudi Arabia. Imagine the sense of pride for our students, from both near and afar, on having created such a beautiful and lasting contribution to the Big Rapids community. If you have not seen this, I encourage you to take a moment to view the amazing work of our students and Dave Murray.

College Description

Engineering Technology College Description and Special Characteristics

- In the spring and fall of 2016, approximately 350 K-12 students participated in Technology Engineering Aptitude events hosted by Ferris to learn about the numerous career opportunities available in engineering related degrees. As part of the curriculum, the students participated in a variety of activities such as designing hovercrafts, building catapults for a mini competition, creating “helmets” to protect eggs, and many engaged with a panel of female students from the College of Engineering Technology.

- In late April 2016, the College of Engineering Technology (CET) hosted its first annual Recognition Dinner to celebrate the women within the college. Students, faculty, and staff from across CET were invited to submit nominations for awards, and the following exceptional individuals received awards:
Outstanding Nontraditional Student Award: Quincee Denault
Nontraditional Student Rising Star Award: Megan Cramer
Nontraditional Student Community Service Award: Stacie Larson
Nontraditional Exceptional Support: Mr. Larry Langell
Outstanding Nontraditional Advocate: Ms. Suzanne Miller
- Kaylie Bohn, an outstanding student from the Industrial Electronics program was nominated and selected by the State of Michigan to receive a Breaking Traditions Merit award. Congratulations, Kaylie!

- Thanks to a grant awarded by the Michigan STEM Partnership and coordination by the local Math/Science/Technology Center at the Mecosta-Osceola Intermediate School District, several area schools were able to learn coding and robotics through clubs at their schools. They were invited to participate in a competition at Ferris in February, 2016 and were challenged to code their robots to complete various tasks. Over 40% of the participants were females, and the first place team was comprised primarily of young women as well. Many student volunteers made the event possible too from the programs of Construction Management and HVACR and student organizations including the Mechanical Service Contractors of America and Women in Technology.

- On May 2, 2016, Professor Suzanne Miller and University Career Programs Specialist Leigha Compson were invited to a television interview at the WOOD TV 8 studio in Grand Rapids, Michigan to discuss opportunities for women in nontraditional fields.

~ Members of the Engineering Society of Detroit have received a supportive and informative review of Ferris State University’s Welding, Construction Management, and Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration programs.

The society’s director of communications and public relations, Matt Roush, visited the Big Rapids campus on Tuesday, Oct. 20 for a Fall Tech Tour stop. Roush met with program coordinators for these College of Engineering Technology programs. The ESD’s website has featured reports in previous tours on Ferris’ technology-based programs.

Ferris Welding Professor Jeff Hardesty welcomed Roush to the Swan Technical Arts Building for a lab tour, and a conversation about the program. Associate Professor David Murray explained that the program’s involvement in the manufacture of a gazebo for Mitchell Creek Park in Big Rapids’ downtown. Associate Professor Jeffrey Carney detailed the university’s hopes for a state capital outlay to allow expansion of the Swan Annex, which create two more labs for Welding, as well as a Center for Advanced Manufacturing.

“We would be able to offer more sections of our labs, and have a more optimized floor plan if the state gives its approval for the expansion,” Hardesty said.
Program Coordinator Doug Zentz led Roush through the Granger Center for Construction and HVACR labs, where associate’s and bachelor’s degree students learn basic industry concepts. Zentz explained that graduates of the AAS program find a very favorable job market, and the top Bachelor of Science graduates in HVACR Engineering Technology each have 10 to 12 job offers to consider.
“We could double the size of our program,” Zentz said. “The hardest part would be finding enough competent, professional professors.”

Construction Management Program Coordinator Suzanne Miller stressed the importance of Building Information Modeling software used by their Bachelor of Science students. Miller told Roush the buildings they design are “built on a computer before the actual construction process” begins, which reduces or eliminates construction issues, and project cost overruns. Miller added that their graduates have to “understand soils, need to understand structure, to know a little about every trade that’s out there.”

John Schmidt, director of the School of Built Environment also welcomed Roush to the Granger Center.
Roush wrote in the Tech Tour blog after his visit that Ferris presented “a vibe of overwhelming practicality, a serious sense of purpose. Very few people are there to find themselves. They are there to find a better life for themselves and their families.”

Roush’s Fall Tech Tour will visit eight state-funded universities, and will conclude Friday, Oct. 23. The series is sponsored by Michigan Technological University. During his visit to Big Rapids, Roush complimented Ferris and the tour’s sponsor, as he said they are “practically oriented,” and “down to earth, down to work.”

Mike Feutz, A Ferris State University Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration associate professor has received an award from the Mechanical Service Contractors of America, for his work with students in the program.

Mike Feutz received the D.S. O’Brien Award of Excellence at the MSCA Conference held in Colorado Springs, Colo., in October. He has served as faculty advisor to Ferris’ MSCA student chapter since 1998. Feutz said that the honor was a “total surprise,” though he noted having a front row seat at the conference awards ceremony should have tipped him to an unusual development.
“I was totally unprepared, as most of the recipients are MSCA member contractors,” Feutz said.
The D.S. O’Brien Award was established in 2000, and is presented each year to an individual who exhibits extraordinary dedication to the HVACR industry, and to the MSCA.

Feutz said that he was asked to serve Ferris’ MSCA chapter as faculty advisor by students, in 1998. The chapter had formed the year before through the efforts of Scott and Chad House, whose father, Don, was business manager of the United Association of plumbers, fitters, welders and service technicians. Feutz said that group has been instrumental in the supporting the HVACR program, and the campus organization.

“They’re the ones who got this started,” Feutz said. “The pipefitter’s union was very instrumental in pushing our service curriculum, and scholarships for our students.”
Feutz also recognized Sandra Miller, the president of the Greater Michigan Plumbing and Mechanical Contractors Association, for her involvement with the MSCA chapter.
“My being named for this award is somewhat unfair to her,” Feutz said. “She has been right there with me in support of these students.”

The MSCA chapter currently has $16,000 in scholarships available each year for participants of this registered student organization. The chapter has received nearly $300,000 in scholarships and additional contributions since its inception.

Feutz said that while graduates of Ferris’ Associate of Applied Science in HVACR Technology, and Bachelor of Science in HVACR Engineering Technology and Energy Management find multiple job offers in their field, participation in the MSCA chapter also supports these students’ goals.

“It’s important to show those leadership roles and organizational involvement on their resume,” Feutz said. “Belonging to an industry-sponsored RSO is the best way to build a network of potential employers.”

Feutz was also chosen as the Mechanical Contractors Association of America’s Educator of the Year in 2008 and again in 2010. The chapter itself was named chapter of the year four times (2000, 2002, 2008 and 2010). Ferris was the first university to earn such recognition.
Feutz earned his associate’s degree in HVACR from Grand Rapids Junior College, now Grand Rapids Community College; a Bachelor of Science degree in HVACR Engineering Technology and a Master of Science in Career and Technical Education, from Ferris; and his Ph.D in Educational Leadership from Western Michigan University.


~ HVACR Dawg Days on November 12 highlighted the HVACR Engineering Technology and Energy Management program experience as an opportunity to illustrate future demands of the workforce and the need for highly skilled labor. Eleven families interested in the program, toured the admissions office, campus, and the Granger Center. Labs were set up to simulate real world problems so visitors could get a taste of what projects an undergraduate in the program might practice. These projects teach students to service equipment as if they were working for a customer and prepare the next generation of HVACR engineering. The Granger Center contains the most up-to-date direct digital control (DDC) lab in the nation, with systems from four major manufacturers as well the Energy Lab, which consists of a working mechanical room and includes a 35 hp. boiler, 10 ton chiller, dual duct and VAV air handlers, and numerous terminal devices located throughout the building.

The Partnering for Transfer event took place at the Granger Center for Construction and HVACR on October 29. Ferris welcomed representatives from community colleges across the state to learn more about HVACR, Construction/Allied Health, and related careers paths.
The keynote speaker, Dr. Katherine Manley, lectured on high wages and in-demand career paths in her presentation “Reflect, Transform, and Lead: A New Vision for Education”. “As long as the skill gap persists, we are depriving the future generation of good, fulfilling careers in dynamic industries” (Manley). Please view the link below to hear more about Dr. Manley and what she had to say: https://youtu.be/kNx3GH5qy9w

Habitat for Humanity House Partners with the HVACR Program
No other university reinforces theory with practice the way Ferris does. Students have the opportunity to experience systems in operation by using facility laboratories as a learning tool. What the HVACR students don’t learn in the laboratory, they learn by participating in community service projects. Students in the HVAC 235 and 245 classes just got to apply their education by volunteering with Habitat for Humanity to build a low income house in Big Rapids. Under the lead of Assistant Professors Joe Compton and Brian Holton, students got to help install the HVAC systems and radiant floor heating for the house.


HVACR Instructor Workshop Returned to Ferris’ Granger Center Aug. 1-3, 2016
Ferris State University- A variety of instructors and professionals in the Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration field offered technical sessions, and a perspective on Ferris State University’s top-flight Bachelor of Science degree program, Aug. 1-3, at the Granger Center for Construction and HVACR in Big Rapids.
The Regional Instructor Workshop offered six sessions on Tuesday, Aug. 2 and four sessions Wednesday, Aug. 3, along with speakers during the daily luncheon. Those attending the workshop also enjoyed opportunities to network with fellow instructors, and visit with exhibitors from the HVACR industry.

Some of the subjects covered in the technical sessions include “Bypass Options with Forced Air Systems,” “Compressor Modulation Technology and Regulations,” and “Technology in the HVAC Classroom.” Doug Zentz, Ferris’ HVACR program coordinator, said that Kitty Manley, a professor in Ferris’ Career and Technical Education program, offeresd the workshop’s keynote address, and “A Sharper Focus on Technical Workers in the HVACR Industry,” an educational workshop, on Wednesday afternoon.

“This is all about broadening the professional development of vocational education instructors who work with high schoolers, or at the community college level,” Zentz said. “Many of them come from smaller schools. Our program endowment provides support for this workshop, so registration costs are kept at a minimum. Kitty Manley is a specialist in this field, so her expertise and observations will be an asset to these instructors.”

Zentz said that this is the first workshop offered by the HVACR program since 2006.

“We hope the instructors benefit from this workshop and pass along what they learn to their students,” Zentz said. “About 60 percent of our Bachelor of Science students in HVACR Engineering Technology and Energy Management transfer to Ferris for the program. So we hope these teachers are impressed with what is available here.”


HVACR program helps the elderly with a community service project! Greater Michigan Mechanical Service Contractors of America’s (MSCA) Ferris State University (HVACR) Student Chapter held their sixteenth annual HEAT’S ON Project on Saturday, October 1.
The Ferris State University MSCA student Chapter and UA Local 190 and UA Local 7 took on the task of scheduling a project for their community, working with the Mecosta County Family Independence Agency.

Community Service News: On Saturday, February 27, 2016 approximately 85 students and from schools across the MOISD region gathered at Ferris State University’s Granger Center for Construction and HVACR for a Robotics and Coding Competition. Thanks to a Michigan STEM Partnership grant written by the MOISD Math/Science Center and Ferris State University’s College of Engineering Technology, coaches at all six school districts within the MOISD were given Dash and Dot, robots that can be controlled by iPads, to help upper elementary and middle school students learn how to code. At the competition, three challenges were revealed and teams had three hours to read the challenge requirements, code their robots, and complete the challenges which included robots plowing over bowling pins, throwing balls into buckets, and navigating through an unlit maze. The judges were made up of volunteers from the College of Engineering Technology who were members of the Women in Technology (WIT) and the HVACR program’s Mechanical Service Contractors Association (MSCA) student organizations. The three winning teams were honored at an awards ceremony where first place was awarded to a team from the Chippewa Hills School District.
HVACR Engineering Technology Program Honored by Affordable Colleges Online.

Ferris State University’s Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration program is ranked third, nationally, among the best online engineering degrees for 2015-16, according to Affordable Colleges Online.
Ferris’ HVACR program has offered engineering technology classes online since 2002, according to HVACR Program Coordinator Doug Zentz. He said the curriculum is one of only two Bachelor of Science programs in the country, and helps address a staggering demand for engineering skills in the industry.
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers has estimated that within five years, there will be a global need for 500,000 HVACR engineers. Zentz said that there will be significant attrition developing in this field, as many engineers are approaching retirement age.

This is the 14th cohort taking HVACR Engineering Technology classes online, and Zentz noted that the students come in with a variety of experiences.
“A lot of them are non-traditional students, people who have been in our industry,” Zentz said. “They may have an associate and are working toward a bachelor’s degree, or they have a different bachelor’s and are working toward HVACR training.”
The students range in age from their mid-20s to mid-50s, and Zentz said that the online courses accommodate their different work shifts and countries of residence.
“I’ve had cohorts where there was a student from California, and another from Saudi Arabia,” Zentz said. “You have to be flexible with them, since not everyone can take part in an 8 a.m. chat session.”
The Ferris HVACR online courses have also progressed, thanks in part to improving technology. Zentz said they have moved from managing courses with Web CT to sending several recorded lectures on a DVD, and on to the current use of Tegrity and Blackboard Learn to deliver instruction.

Affordable Colleges Online considers only public or private not-for-profit institutions that offer bachelor’s degrees or higher, who offer at least one fully online bachelor’s degree. Factors that impact their rankings include six-year graduation rates and student-faculty ratio, and Zentz said Ferris’ HVACR program shines in terms of another metric, job placement.

“Every graduate in the program has at least one job offer to consider, our top students are seeing as many as a dozen companies competing for them,” Zentz said.
There are 14 colleges and universities on the Best Online Engineering Degrees for 2015-16 rankings. The other Michigan-based institution on the list is Baker College, which was founded as Muskegon College in 1888 by Ferris’ founder, Woodbridge Ferris.

Ferris State University’s HVAC 451 Energy Audit and Analysis course begins an energy audit on St. Mary’s School.
Ferris State University’s Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Program (HVACR) has a long history of providing innovative service projects. Every year, Energy Audit and Analysis students, under the direction of Mike Korcal, Associate Professor (HVAC 451), and Joe Pacella, Assistant Professor (HVAC 342), learn how to implement classroom principles to perform an energy audit. It is a very creative and yet practical approach to energy conservation that could potentially save organization thousands of dollars if implemented. This year the energy audit is being performed on St. Mary’s Church in Big Rapids.

The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has announced a 3rd place win to Ferris State University HVACR students in the International HVAC System Selection Competition. - Join the program to support this year’s student “dream team” as they receive awards at the 2017 ASHRAE Winter Conference in Las Vegas: Remus Roman (Queens, NY), Anis Andrawes (Lansing, MI), Yoginder Rana, (San Diego, CA), Zachary Wirth (Flint, MI), Trevor Boyle (North Attleboro, MA), and Martial Tsoungui (Big Rapids, MI.)
The purpose of the competition is to recognize outstanding student design projects, encourage undergraduate students to become involved in the profession, and apply their knowledge of practical design and to promote teamwork and collaboration.

`“WOMEN BREAK THE MOLD” By Maranda Published: May 2, 2016, 5:29 pm
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) There are amazing opportunities for women in engineering, technology, and other fields that are typically dominated by men, but so many girls are unaware of the career paths they can choose. Ferris State University understands this, and that’s why it strives to expose them to non-traditional career fields.
Non-traditional careers are those fields in which less than 25% of the field is comprised of one gender (e.g., women in engineering). Less than 20% are engineers and this number has not changed significantly in the past 20 years.
There are tremendous opportunities for women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). Women make 33% more in STEM fields than non-STEM fields. Engineers design, invent, create, and innovate, and help to make the world a better place.
Ferris is committed to supporting women in these fields. It hosts events throughout the year to help strengthen a sense of community for female students in the College of Engineering Technology. It also engages in community outreach to increase the awareness of opportunities, such as Mother Daughter TEA (Technology Engineering Aptitude) events.
Ferris offers Career Support Services for students with an emphasis on supporting females in non-traditional careers.

~ At the October Board of Trustees meeting the renovation of the first floor of the five-story Swan Building was approved. The approved amount not to exceed $2.5 million includes renovating the entire first floor for Mechanical Engineering Technology, Energy Systems, Architecture, and Facilities Management. The plan is to start this renovation in late spring and have it completed by August 1, 2017. Some of our projects do not include any ongoing University dollars. For example, the Swan Annex renovation includes $22.5 million from the State for this one purpose, and we have a fundraising campaign underway for much of the rest of it. It will include a few one-time university funds. This project is a wonderful opportunity to greatly enhance programmatic spaces for Welding Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing with the University paying one fourth the cost. Welding also has a two year waiting list for students wanting to get into the program.

SAE Baja Racing Team
The team has had continual growth in the past years and this year is no different. Our 35 members represent 5 majors from the College of Engineering Technology. Of the 35 members, 14 are new this year.
The team is led by Nick Horton, under Professor Russell Leonard. Sam Armstrong is this year’s co-captain, Nick Keel is the club’s treasurer, and Jake Vaillancourt is the design team leader. All veteran members are encouraged to take some form of leadership position within the team to help the overall process and to oversee the production of the car. Also, by having the best people for the job, we are helping build our new members skills, an important factor for the continual life and growth of the club.
2015 " 2016 Accomplishments
Last year was an amazing year for us. We completed and had a painted car weeks before leaving for competition, a first in many, many seasons. Because we were done with our build with so much time to spare, we were very excited to reveal the finished product to Dean Schult before we left. Also having the extra time meant we prepared and left for competition stress free. Having a finished product well before our deadline was huge for the moral of the team, and everyone that was able to come with us to the competition was extremely excited. This is a situation we have high hopes to repeat this year.
Besides beating our build deadline, throughout the season we made many great improvements to our car, team and build area. Last season’s car had a new, shorter, frame design, as well as a new rear hub design, designed and manufactured in house. Also, by purging our area of unnecessary equipment we freed up a lot more working room, as well as became better organized in the area. The extra work space was needed as we fabricated a new metal building table that will last in the shop for years to come. This new metal table is much sturdier than our old wooden table, and is much safer to electrically ground to while welding our frame. After being in service for less than half the season, it has already proved itself to be a worthwhile expense. Furthermore, we improved the fabrication capabilities of the club by purchasing a new tube bender and many new hand and power tools. Finally, an unexpected surprise, we received a new plasma cutter courtesy of Miller Electric over the summer.
Michigan Tech Winter Baja
Last season at the Michigan Tech Winter Baja we did very well with both cars that we took to the competition. Officially we took 2nd place with car #71 and unofficially we took 4th with car #22. Unfortunately, the transponder on car #22 was not functioning properly, so its laps were not officially counted. This marks the second year of improvement at the competition, as last season we took third, so we are aiming for 1st place this season to complete our trophy collection.
SAE National Competition
Our national competition was held in Cookeville, Tennessee last season at Tennessee Tech. We competed against 96 other schools from around the country and around the globe. We went into the competition with high spirits with our freshly completed build, ready to race. Overall we placed 40th out of all teams, measured by scores in dynamic and endurance events that tested our car to the limit. And in a testament to our build, no major components of the car broke, and we had no fatal breaks that stopped our competition short. The team showed great cohesiveness and really worked together in the times when the car was in the pit, working to quickly get us back out on the track making laps.
The table below summarizes our scoring in each event at the national competition.
Sales 37th out of 96
Acceleration 60th out of 96
Maneuverability 53rd out of 96
Sled Pull 42nd out of 96
Suspension 42nd out of 96
Endurance 35th out of 96
Overall 40th out of 96

Midnight Mayhem
A decision that we made last season, and are now working to fulfill this season is to go to a third competition. Traditional we have only gone to the two, Michigan Tech and nationals, however at the end of the season we as a team decided to try for the third. This competition will be held in Bedford Kentucky on October 1st, sponsored by the University of Louisville, Red Bull, and Cummins. The team is very excited to attend this race, as it will be a great opportunity for new members to get experience in a race situation and even get to drive the car. This will be a great moral boost that we do not normally see for in the team until the Michigan Tech competition. This competition will feature dynamic events and a four-hour endurance race that begins at 8:00pm.
2016 " 2017 Goals
Though our build preformed beyond expectations at competition, there are still areas that needed addressing when we returned. The national competition showed us that we need to address car steering and handling, so these will be the major areas of attention this season. To help improve the cars maneuverability we are going to try and implement a cutting break to the car. Also we will be modifying out frame design to accommodate our planned handling improvements, and we will be changing the front and rear of the car. Changing the front will allow us to modify our suspension, as well as change to more sloped nose to help with the rock crawl at this year’s national competition. At the rear of the car, we are looking into changing the gearbox system and lowering the motor to help with acceleration and handling.
Our competition goals for the season include Midnight Mayhem in October 2016, Michigan Tech Winter Baja in February 2017, and SAE Baja Nationals at Peoria Illinois on June 7th, 2017. The national competition we are planning on going to is held at the Caterpillar proving grounds, so we will be working on the car with the expectation that it will need to handle an extremely brutal course.
Furthermore, throughout the season we will be working to build our new member’s skills, and begin molding new club leadership in preparation for our current leaders graduating. Our treasurer and design leader are graduating this year, so we are looking into replacements for their positions. Also, we have a large number of new members, so it is important that we teach them how we do things so that we pass on the skills of the club.
Below is our season calendar. Most notably we hope to be finished with fabrication in February. That is a very ambitious deadline, but with the new tools we have and the enthusiasm of the team, we believe that it is an achievable goal. This will be huge for us, as it will mean a ton of time for vehicle testing, and opportunity for national’s drivers to practice in the car before the race.
