(Futuristic bicycle design concept by WARxSnakenCycle)

The Velovations Bicycle Design Enterprise is dedicated to collaborating with the bicycle industry to develop new products and new processes. The goal of Velovations will be to educate students in the fundamentals of a product development enterprise from customer need, through product and process design and testing, manufacturing, supply chain management, marketing, and distribution. To this end, Velovations will be an industry directed, faculty advised student enterprise where faculty support students with critical learning modules that span the spectrum of engineering, business, science, and technology to enable their success in Velovations and prepare them for a future in the bike industry.

Students will use their diverse backgrounds (MechE, ElectE, IndustE, BiomedE, SportsPhys, BusAdmin, Marketing, Technoloty, TechWriting, etc.) and capabilities to lead Velovations in delivering product and process innovations to the bicycle industry in the forms of hardware, analysis, and testing results.

Velovations is open to students of all majors and areas of interest. Students don’t have to be avid cyclists to contribute to Velovations.
