MIT Motorsports team members learn the valuable design ingenuity that can only come from working on real-world projects, while still maintaining the practical elements of budgets, deadlines, fundraising, and teamwork. A problem in traditional education is that students don’t get the hands-on experience necessary to tackle real-world challenges. Design skills and problem solving go beyond what is taught in the classroom, and with the global challenges of today, it is important that we continue to produce highly-skilled engineers, especially those who have the ability to think creatively.
