Clean Snowmobile Challenge (SAE)

Club Purpose & Goals

Clean Snowmobile Challenge (CSC) Team — CSC is a SAE International Collegiate Design Series interdisciplinary competition held annually in Houghton, Michigan. The U of I Clean Snowmobile Challenge Team reengineers an existing snowmobile to improve emissions, noise, and fuel economy. The U of I team has competed in the CSC for sixteen years. The U of I team won the competition in 2002, 2003 and 2007 and has accumulated more than 50 awards. U of I is the only team in CSC history to win the coveted Founder’s Trophy award back-to-back in 2015 and 2016.

The team's main purpose is shaping students of any discipline into engineers who are ready for industry, giving opportunities for hands-on experience on student-led projects.

Clean Snowmobile Challenge


Clean Snowmobile Challenge Team - Winning Tradition

U of I engineering students have attended the annual SAE International Clean Snowmobile Challenge (CSC) held in Houghton, Michigan since its inception in 2000. The intent of the international competition is challenge undergraduate engineering students to develop a snowmobile that is acceptable for use in environmentally sensitive areas such as our National Parks or other pristine areas. The team modifies a stock snowmobile to compete in a variety of events including emissions, noise, fuel economy, endurance, acceleration, handling, static display, cold start and design.
