Solidworks is the main design platform for all of our projects. We also take advantage of its capabilities for CAM, FEA, and CFD.
Pratt & Whitney Canada, one of the world’s leading aerospace companies, has generously helped to fund the team’s operations since our very first project. Their support has improved the education of many engineers and researchers in aerospace applications. The contributions of P&WC are primarily used to purchase materials and components.
The University of Toronto Engineering Society (EngSoc) is the student union of all engineering students at U of T. EngSoc, through its subsidiary the Design Team Association (DTA), manages and allocates the team's workspaces at 256 McCaul and MCEIE, and provides an annual tuition levy that comprises a large portion of team funding.
Composites Canada assists our team with discounted supplies and materials, while also providing invaluable advice on the manufacturing techniques we use.
MSE is our host department, providing funding, testing facility access, and other assistance since the team’s inception.
PMG Technologies allowed HPVDT to use their largest test track for the initial roadworthiness tests of our Eta Prime speedbike.
Siemens provides us with fiberglass off-cuts from their wind turbine blade manufacturing facility in Tillsonburg, Ontario, which is used for manufacturing our molds and heavier components.
