Build a prototype Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM).
Our team is harnessing the interdisciplinary talents of University of Washington students to engineer innovative transit solutions. Currently, our goal is to participate in The Boring Company’s competition first started by Elon Musk.
We seek to train the engineers of the future. We seek to create a society that relies on sustainable, rapid transit systems. We want to prepare our members for their post-graduation plans by engaging them with hands on, team based engineering problems.
Washington Hyperloop was founded in 2015 to build a concept pod for the first annual SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition started by Elon Musk. Over the years our team won a multitude of awards and achieved international recognition.
The competition was canceled in 2020 and since then our team has been hard at work engineering a Tunnel Boring Machine for the Not-a-Boring competition.See Current Work
