Information about Summer and Fall Motorsports Course Offerings.
Two new courses will be offered by the IUPUI Motorsports Program during summer and fall of 2012. Please take a look at these, as they may be of interest to you.
Race Team Project Management will be offered Summer I Session. This class will actually take a team of students who, along with faculty, will develop and execute a plan to take two IUPUI racecars (the FSAE car and the IUPUI MG) and compete in 5 or 6 Sports Car Club of America events in June, July, and August. For all the details, see the attached flier.
Continuous Combustion Engines class will be offered fall semester 2012
At the request of a number of students, Professor Hylton will be offering a class based on his 25 years as an engineer in the gas turbine industry. The class will look at gas turbines, jets, rocket engines, and other continuous combustion engines and their applications in and out of motorsports. For all details see the attached flier.
MSTE 41400 (Design II) will be offered as a Summer I Session class but it will NOT be offered in the fall 2012 semester. Therefore, if you plan to graduate December 2012.......you need to sign up for it in Summer I Session.
Please contact Professor Hylton (email@example.com) if you plan to do this.
IUPUI’s Motorsports Engineering Named a Top 10 Automotive Engineering Program in the U.S.
Those seeking careers in the car industry spend hours agonizing about their choices when it comes to colleges and universities. Unfortunately, many fail to realize that what students do outside of class will be at least as important as where classes are held. [MORE]

How did you become interested in motorsports?
What brought you to IUPUI?
At IUPUI I'm involved in:
How has IUPUI/your college experience impacted you? I have learned so much about the racing industry and the general workings of a race car by just being at IUPUI. I have only been here for one semester and already I have met at least a dozen leading people in the motorsports industry. I love this sport and IUPUI is giving me the tools I need to succeed.
