Shift Hyperloop is an independent non-profit organization founded in Trondheim by students from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The team currently consists of approximately 60 members from various fields of study. Shift was officially founded 1. February 2019 by ten students with the goal of developing a green and efficient transportation method based on Hyperloop technology.
Shift Hyperloop enjoys a close and mutually beneficial relationship with NTNU. Shift consists entirely of NTNU students and gives them an opportunity to have a hands-on experience that is normally unavailable for engineering students. New students get an excellent opportunity to meet others with similar interests, work with more experienced students and build interdisciplinary relationships. We also provide the university with potential bachelor- and master-theses for graduating students.
We are primarily an organisation meant to teach and educate NTNU students, however we are also students who seek to help solve the massive challenges the world is facing. As such you can expect to see Shift advocating for green measures and further research on how we can combat climate change.
In 2022 Shift Hyperloop will test out our pod for the first time in the European Hyperloop Week in the Netherlands, where we compete against other university-teams from across the world
