2021 University of South Carolina Capstone Program

Share This Post

The Triple Tree Aerodrome was proud to partner with the University of South Carolina and their Mechanical Engineering Capstone program.

Building on our success from 2020, the University of South Carolina asked to expand our partnership by supporting two Capstone teams.

The Capstone Design program is a required senior-level course for every College of Engineering and Computing student. Industry sponsors introduce their real-world challenges, which need attention, and offer their support to prepare the next generation of engineering and computing professionals. Students form teams to combine theory and practice while gaining valuable experience.

The two teams worked on challenges that we faced at Triple Tree.  The first team designed a pump station for our water truck to fill the water tank safely and efficiently.  The second team worked through multiple areas on the 85% Cub to assist with design objectives and concept testing.

Each of the teams worked through concept generation and selection, and design to produce a testable, working prototype that can be refined to meet each of these projects’ unique objectives!

Thank you to the University of South Carolina and their continued support of the Triple Tree Aerodrome!
