Advanced Transportation Systems Program


Description: Description: space



Rose-Hulman was founded in 1874 specifically to fill a void of railroad engineers in the Midwest. While the times have changed, our purpose has not. Truly it has become bolder— to create the world’s best engineers uniquely qualified for success in a demanding global market.


Established in 2003, the Advanced Transportation Systems Fund (ATSFund) has served as an umbrella to facilitate corporate sponsorship for Rose-Hulman’s six ATS competition teams : ChallengeX / EcoCAR, Rose Efficient Vehicle, Human Powered Vehicle Team, Rose Gran Prix Engineering, Team Rose Motorsports, and Design Build Fly. Focusing respectively on hybrid electric powertrains, super efficiency, human locomotion, formula-style racing, all-out performance, and aviation, these teams, though spread across campus, work together in a synergistic virtual cauldron sharing ideas, technology, and even members. This interaction, coupled with strict deadlines and intense pressure, has served as an excellent preparatory model in developing young engineers who are immediate producers and rapid risers in the advanced transportation sector.


Dedicated faculty members mentoring these highly motivated and innovative undergraduate students have resulted in numerous international accolades.  As the Inaugural Advanced Transportation Systems Program Director, I invite you to “get to know” our competition by exploring their websites below.  I am personally very proud of their success and am sure you will be impressed as well.

The ATS Student Council serves as a vehicle for members of the ATS program to share information and resources, coordinate outreach activities, host campus visitors, and provide external speakers.
