About

Berkeley Hyperloop is ardently committed to our vision of the Hyperloop concept. To guarantee our success at the 2019 SpaceX Pod Competition, our team needs your help.

Who We are

Berkeley Hyperloop is a nationally competitive student team that designs, engineers, and builds a high-speed pod that can bring you from SF to LA in just 29 minutes. Each year, we work towards the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition. A concept developed by Elon Musk, Hyperloop is an engineering challenge that is a revolutionary solution to many environmental and social problems, and it is a challenge that we, as undergraduate engineering students at Berkeley, would like to solve.

Mission Statement

Berkeley Hyperloop seeks to develop novel technological and industrial paradigms to advance high-speed ground transportation, while simultaneously equipping Berkeley students with the skills needed to evolve into the inventors and innovators of the future.

We are determined to build a transportation pod and system that emphasizes 

  • safety, 
  • security, and 
  • social responsibility.

Our Team

Berkeley Hyperloop plans to set the standard for safety for this revolutionary fifth form of transport. Our vision includes sophisticated braking systems and breakthrough levitation handling, and those plans can only be achieved with your help! Only with your support can we build not only the best prototype, but also 

forever inspire the future of transportation. 

Risks and challenges

Engineering the pod with our three requirements (safety, security and social responsibility) is a challenge. To ensure we meet our goals, Berkeley Hyperloop has revamped our internal team last Fall and streamlined our timeline to meet efficiency. Every year, Berkeley Hyperloop has successfully build our pod with the help of crowdsourced funds from you, our supporters.
