The University of Minnesota's Solar Vehicle Project is made up of a dynamic group of students! We come from many different disciplines, ranging from Marketing to Electrical Engineering. We love to have new members on every team, even if the team is not in your field of study.  We are proud to be working with design students on the University of Minnesota campus for our next car, and they are a part of every engineering team, so we know you will have talents we need, even if you are not studying engineering or business.


If a specific group piqued your interest, please feel free to reach out to the group leader directly; they would be more than happy to tell you about the projects they are currently working on and help you find a place within their group! The calendar below shows the specific meeting times and locations for each group, so you are also welcome to just show up. If you aren't sure which group you want to be part of, email us with some information about yourself and why you are interested in joining UMNSVP, and we will make sure you get the opportunity to hear from the people we think you might like to work with. We are an all inclusive group that values all ranges of experience; the more diverse our backgrounds, the more innovative we can be!
