Student Spotlight: NovaRacing’s Taylor McDermott ’23 CpE Is Driven to Succeed
“I never grew up wanting to work on cars,” says McDermott, one of NovaRacing’s team captains, “but I came into Formula SAE because I saw it as an opportunity to do hands-on engineering as an undergraduate. There’s really no other club like it on campus.”
