Quarterscale Tractor TeamNebraska Engineering's Quarter Scale Tractor Team placed sixth among 30 universities in a spring 2008 competition in Peoria, Ill. AGEN seniors and co-captains (left to right, below) Will Corman, Mark Tieszen and Grant Janousek led more than 20 students in the design and building of Big Red's four-engine, four-wheel-drive tractor weighing 900 pounds without the operator (the engines were about 400 pounds). "This was an engineering challenge to design a tractor that used materials efficiently," said Janousek, who plans to graduate in December 2008 with a B.S. in agricultural engineering, and then continue for his M.S. at UNL.
