A team of 26 mechanical engineering cadets recently competed in the Baja Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) vehicle design competition at Tennessee Tech in Cookeville, Tennessee.
Mentored by Maj. Craig Altmann, who has a background in automotive engineering, cadets designed and built a single-seat, all-terrain sporting vehicle that went head-to-head against vehicles built by approximately 100 teams from universities across the country and world. The VMI team consists of nine 1st Class cadets, five 2nd Class cadets, and 12 3rd Class cadets.
