Latest spotlight

Halfway across the world, Texas A&M University class of 2014 graduate John Mayo woke up to a flurry of text messages delivering the news that his team, the MIT Hyperloop Team, had taken the top prize at the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Design Competition Weekend.

Somewhere in the mix of 124 teams of the brightest young minds from universities all over the world, three teams of high school students are competing for a stake in the future of transportation.

When a few people in the Texas A&M engineering department were first approached about hosting a design competition for an idea thought up by billionaire tech magnate Elon Musk, they immediately said yes.

Financial magazines, technology blogs and local newspapers are all following developments for Hyperloop, a futuristic transportation mode.

The eye of the transportation world will be on Texas A&M University in less than two months, and the College of Engineering hopes to make the most of its time in the spotlight.
