Don't need college for that...just some sheets of carbon, some epoxy, and a jig saw or two. That is a garage worthy project for sure. Start collecting some old or busted carbon frames! May help to have some sort of a frame jig to hold alignment where you want it.
My buddy has made a few versions of longer carbon rear end for an older frame he loves.
College comes in when you are designing the carbon layup and tooling for the finished product, not a hacked-together-from-other-parts proto.
