TranLIVE Student of the Year | 2014

Name: Rory Lilley

Student Bio

As a MSME student at the University of Idaho, Rory Lilley has served as an effective leader/organizer/technical consultant to our undergraduate Formula Hybrid SAE team. This project has been sponsored by TranLIVE as an educational outreach since the inception of the TranLIVE center and by the Idaho Engineering Works in the senior design program. Lilley worked his way up through the student ranks, as an undergraduate team member, as a senior design student, as a UTC intern and as a UTC graduate student. Currently, he is an excellent role model in terms of his dedication to hard work, his recruiting of new inter-disciplinary talent to the team, his ability to organize training sessions/design experiences that capture and retain important vehicle design knowledge, his rapport with faculty advisors, his familiarity with manufacturing equipment in our machine shop, his ability to deploy testing equipment in our small engines laboratory, his ability to accurately simulate engine/powertrain systems, and his high standards in the authorship of project reports/technical papers. The impact of his efforts, coaching and all-around vehicle knowledge can be seen in the FHSAE team success at the 2014 International Formula Hybrid Competition. This included 1st place overall, the Chrysler Innovation Award and the GM Hybrid Electric Design Award. Lilley has been an integral part of the UI FHSAE legacy for many years and his efforts continue to pay it forward to future vehicle platform teams as well as engine design/engine testing research projects. Contributions in both areas are closely aligned with DOT UTC mobility, sustainability and human resource missions.
