Mini Baja and SunStang unveil their 2005 vehicles
June 2005

Today’s Western Engineering students continue to be highly ambitious. Every year, the Mega Project teams (including Flying Mustangs, Formula SAE, Mini Baja and SunStang) design and build a vehicle from scratch and participate in competitions around the world. 

At the end of May, the Formula SAE team unveiled their 2005 vehicle — click here to read more.  This past June, the Mini Baja and SunStang teams unveiled their 2005 vehicles.

The official unveiling of the SunStang vehicle took place Monday, June 6 at the UCC in front of a number of faculty, staff, students and media representatives.

“The car encompasses some of the most advanced technologies available in industry today,” explained electrical systems manager Tom Gwozdz. 

On top of developing a solar powered vehicle, the team strives to promote awareness of renewable energy and inspire young minds.  Although the primary focus is the London community, events such as the High School Solar Challenge have stretched across Southern Ontario. 

The Mini Baja team, of approximately fifteen undergraduate engineering students, proudly unveiled their 2005 vehicle in the lobby of TEB Monday, June 13.  The team had just returned from an East Competition where they placed 44th overall—click here to read more—and were preparing for the much larger Midwest Competition in Troy, Ohio.
