Washington Hyperloop

What started as a brainchild of innovator Elon Musk, Hyperloop has grown to become a worldwide race to engineer and manufacture the fifth mode of transportation. The Hyperloop technology promises increased: speed, efficiency, and convenience to a stagnant transportation market.  It is hypothesized that such a technology could transport passengers from Los Angeles to San Francisco in thirty minutes or Seattle to Vancouver in twelve. Hyperloop provides an environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to traditional forms of travel. As cities expand and natural resources diminish, a technology like the Hyperloop becomes a future necessity.


Washington Hyperloop is a team of motivated engineers, leaders, business people, and designers from the University of Washington competing in the Hyperloop Pod Competition.  Our team needs more funding in order to advance our research towards a sustainable transit system based on renewable energy, and compete at a high level in the SpaceX competition. Last year, our team placed 1st in the United States and 4th in the world. This year we hope to improve upon our performance and achieve a top speed of over 250 mph in around 12 seconds. A crucial part of our research is testing various parts and designs to determine the best path forwards, validate theories, perform safety checks, etc..


That being said, Washington Hyperloop does much more than just design a pod for a competition each year. We strive to provide the next generation of engineers the skills needed to work on the most innovative projects in the world, and we need your help to reach our ambitious competition goals and continue educating the next generation of engineers!
