Fourth Year Projects 2009-10

While work ramps up on the manufacture of Bethany, behind-the-scenes preparations have begun for the next academic year. During 2009-10 team captains Pip Walters and Prem Sohal will lead the development of CUER’s next solar car for the 2011 Global Green Challenge. 4th-year Masters projects have been arranged in the last week and twenty projects are now being advertised. This is a big step up from the eleven projects used to design Bethany and the five Affinity projects.

Pip Walters

Team Manager Pip - already rehearsing her "Don't mess with me" face, which Anthony has so far failed to master.

Technical Director Prem - getting slightly carried away with ideas for next year's chassis materials.

Extra projects in areas including Computational Fluid Dynamics, control systems, vehicle dynamics and design optimisation will allow next year’s team to develop a much more innovative solar car and do further research into some preliminary concepts proposed this year. We’re delighted to welcome some new academic supervisors to the project, namely Dr. Will Graham, Dr. Stewart Cant, Dr. Tim Flack, Dr. Tim Coombs, Prof. Tony Purnell, Prof. Gehan Amaratunga, Dr. Tim Wilkinson and Mr. Aylmer Johnson.

Students are now being recruited  for the 2009-10 projects and an info session with project managers and supervisors will be held at 16:00 on Monday 11th May in Lecture Room 5.
