HYPED is a team of students at the University of Edinburgh dedicated to developing the Hyperloop concept and inspiring future generations about engineering. We are the best Hyperloop team in the UK, having received awards from SpaceX, Virgin Hyperloop One and Institution of Civil Engineers.

Hyperloop is a proposed network of near-vacuum steel tubes to transport humans and cargo in magnetically levitating pods.


HYPED develop advanced technology in the pursuit of the Hyperloop dream. Originally founded to compete in the global SpaceX technology-based competition, HYPED design and manufacture prototype Hyperloop components and pods.

We have developed four Hyperloop prototype pods.


We maintain an intimate relationship with the industry, promoting our partners on a global stage and using these relationships to bridge the gap between the brightest students and the industry.


Managed and run solely by some of the brightest students from the University of Edinburgh, HYPED finds itself an incubator for startups and connecting students with industry. Our members have interned at the top companies around the world, including NASA, SpaceX and Google.
