Students used digital modeling on the computer, as well as hand sketches, to develop multiple iterations of their designs. They evaluated and re-designed their prototypes employing grids and stencils. Each student chose their best rendition and turned it into a 3D plan. The body of the car was created using a 3D printer. Wheels were attached and final modifications were made by hand. Printed race cars were powered by CO2 cartridges. Student creations competed in head-to-head competition on a 65 foot, specially made race track.
Engineers may explore materials that can be used in athletic wear that protect against rips, tears, that wick moisture. They may use 3D printers to create trendy athletic or camping gear, new heels for shoes, and much more. They may develop sensors that can be manipulated into clothing for biofeedback and explore explore metals, textiles, and plastics to create that perfect look or function.
Dr. Matteson earned his Ph.D. in History and Theory of Architecture from MIT after earning his Master’s in Architecture and Urban Design from Harvard. He has taught Architecture and Design Theory at Northeastern University and Massachusetts College of Art and Design and is now an Engineering instructor.
