The Queen’s Hyperloop Design Team (QHDT) is a team comprised of over 60 like-minded students who share a passion for innovative design and novel technologies. QHDT leverages the amazingly talented students within the Queen’s community to work in a cross-functional team, striving towards one goal: make the hyperloop a reality. The team spends the school year designing and building a prototype hyperloop pod that can be propelled in a vacuum tube. The team competed at the 2019 Hyperloop Pod Competition held at the SpaceX headquarters in Los Angeles and had the opportunity to meet Elon Musk (who shared riveting insights into his experience at Queen’s as an undergrad!). QHDT was one of 21 international teams that qualified for the weeklong event.
