Pitt’s New Human Powered Vehicle Club Headed to National Competition

Pitt Engineering Students Build Super-Bike to Compete Nationally

Founded in 2015 by Mechanical Engineering Student Abe Stucky, the Pitt Human Powered Vehicle Club is ready to make a national showing.  The team of 15 members will send their super-bike creation to the Human Powered Vehicle Competition in Cookeville, TN on April 21. They’ll be entering the super bike they’ve been building by hand for the last few months.

To those in the know, an HPVC Champion title gives you some serious street cred in the Mechanical Engineering scene. And even gets you some notoriety in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the group that hosts the competition.
