In the programme, the students will enjoy a tour of DevLoop, Virgin Hyperloop One’s operational full-scale Hyperloop test track in Nevada. Moreover, participants will be able to join a relevant engineering team, and be assigned a mentor for the remainder of the program in Los Angeles.

Following an intensive induction and orientation period, students will work alongside engineers as they complete their tasks and collaborate with other areas of the business. Students will complete an individual project through the program, and present conclusions to the teams from Misk and Virgin Hyperloop One in the final week.
