Society of Automotive Engineers 12th Man Garage

12th Man Garage is a program designed to give students insight to the intricacies of the automotive industry through hands on and classroom style learning. With all of the normal anticipated roles of a “shop class”, students will get their hands dirty in the act of restoring a vehicle while learning key design considerations required for each sub-system.

The program will be further supplemented with design competitions for component placement in the vehicle. Anticipated outcomes for members are: increased knowledge of automobiles, introduction to manufacturing in design, system integration, and light design/fabrication work.
