BYU student engineers lead project to design global race car
August 12, 2007
Brigham Young University mechanical engineering professor C. Greg Jensen and his students recently returned from Germany, where they presented their global race car at the annual PACE faculty forum.
PACE, the industry coalition that includes General Motors and supports computer-aided engineering, selected the BYU team to lead a group of engineering students from around the world in designing and assembling a Formula One race car.
BYU was chosen for its engineering expertise and for its diverse language skills, which allowed team members to communicate just as well with collaborators in Korea as with those in Canada.
In studies published over the last year, BYU’s interdisciplinary research group Autism Connect has outlined ways to change these norms by improving the accuracy, timeliness and helpfulness of autism diagnoses.
