SAE Clean Snowmobile Team at their first meeting of the
2012-2013 competition year
The UB Society of Automotive Engineers' (SAE) team was the Best
Emissions Winner in the SAE 2013 Clean Snowmobile Challenge (CSC).
The CSC engineering design competition challenges engineering
students to reengineer an exisiting snowmobile to reduce emissions
and noise and increase fuel efficiency. Their modified snowmobiles
compete in a variety of events including emissions, noise, fuel
economy/endurance, acceleration, handling, static display, cold
start and design presentation. The UB SAE team competed in the
event with a 3-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, passing the standards
set for soot output by over 40%. The team's faculty advisor is MAE
Adjunct Assistant Professor Edward M. Kasprzak.
