Design Engineering Team Wins Manufacturing Competition

Design Engineering Team Wins Manufacturing Competition


Congratulations to Mt. SAC’s Industrial Design Engineering Team who won the design competition at the AeroDef Manufacturing Summit and Exposition on Feb. 25-27 at the Long Beach Convention Center. 

The team’s multi-platform simulator was the winning entry in the community college/trade school competition. After weeks of planning and work, students completed the project and adapted it to simulate flight, car racing, and a roller coaster. It also has the capacity to simulate other activities and sports.

Orange County Wheelchair Repair and Maintenance owner Mike Williams donated the motors used for the simulator, an example of the Design Engineering Program’s cooperative relationships with industry.

Professors Max Lizarraga and Steve James serve as advisors for the team.
