Club - Paradigm Engineering
The Northeastern Paradigm Engineering Club is an international team of students from Northeastern University and Memorial University of Newfoundland & Labrador who have come together to make the Hyperloop concept a reality. They aim to prove the viability of air based levitation for use in high-speed applications by building a prototype Hyperloop pod capable of reaching 400mph.
The Hyperloop is a conceptual fifth mode of transportation consisting of levitating high-speed capsules traveling through low-pressure vacuum tubes. The concept was introduced by Elon Musk in 2013 and aims to provide a cheaper, more efficient, and more sustainable alternative to existing methods of transportation.
