About Us

Formed in 2018, Strathloop is the University of Strathclyde’s Hyperloop Pod Competition team

Our team is comprised of over 90 undergraduate and graduate students in various degree disciplines. Our mission is to revolutionize passenger and freight transportation by prototyping a vactrain system: a supersonic railway which uses maglev technology in vacuum tubes. It is estimated that Hyperloop will be capable of top speeds of up to 760 mph, allowing for travel between Glasgow and London in just 42 minutes.


Our society plays host to and participates in several events throughout the year, including social events, conferences and Strathclyde Union events. Check to see if we have any events for you!


Our primary focus this year is the European Hyperloop Week which will take place in Valencia in July 2021. For this, we have been working hard on research and development for our most recent design iteration.
