Our Team

Founded in Summer 2015, Berkeley Hyperloop (or bLoop) is a team comprised of undergraduate and graduate students currently attending the University of California, Berkeley. We are a diverse group of individuals who take pride in our work, and are involved across many different groups on campus. bLoop especially values the connection we make between the engineering industry and academia. We hope to contribute to the wealth of open source knowledge about Hyperloop with our design and build.
