2016 ASME Human Powered Vehicle Challenge East

Ohio University is proud to host the American Society of Mechanical Engineers’ 2016 Human Powered Vehicle Challenge (HPVC) East competition in Athens, Ohio, from May 13-15, 2016. Attracting more than 300 student competitors from across the globe, the event is one of just two contests in the United States held annually.

Student teams will design and build efficient, highly engineered vehicles and test them against one another through sprint and endurance races. HPVC provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate how sound engineering design can create and improve sustainable and practical transportation alternatives.
