The University of Southern California's
Hyperloop Design Team
USC Hyperloop unveiled its plans to compete in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition immediately after the competition was announced, and we don't plan to cease our relentless commitment to a successful Hyperloop Pod any time soon.
A team of over 20 USC VIterbi engineers has made significant progress conducting research on Hyperloop technologies and establishing a prominent engineering design-build team at the University of Southern California. As of January 2016, USC Hyperloop is also one of the 29 student team finalists in the first installment of the SpaceX Hyperloop Competition. Today, the team is rapidly building their first prototype and testing our propulsion system in our lab.
Competition Weekend is scheduled for January 27th-29th, 2017 in Hawthorne, CA. USC Hyperloop intends to complete a working prototype by this time to test on the test track.
