Building a MagLev System With Student Technology

For more than seven years, teams of students have been working to develop commercial personal rapid transit technology based on Virginia Tech's switched-reluctance maglev design.

Students work in interdisciplinary teams and can earn course credit as part of the Virtual Corporation, which is based on a corporate model. Teams and systems change each semester depending upon the project's status.

Students have developed a unique electric porpulsion system and successfully tested levitation, propulsion, and guidance systems. Current efforts involve designing a full-scale commuter system for the Virginia Tech campus.
