Meet the Team

Welcome to the Scooter Product Design Capstone!


Mission Statement

We are a team of passionate mechanical engineering students working toward enhancing electric scooters on campus. We are currently in the beginning stages of the design process, so we have yet to narrow our focus on a single problem statement or solution.
