Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and General Motors, EcoCAR 3 is a unique four-year collegiate engineering competition. The competition’s mission is a vital one: offer an unparalleled hands- on, real-world experience to educate the next generation of automotive engineers through innovative design. The competition challenges 16 universities across North America to reduce the environmental impact of a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro without compromising performance, safety and consumer acceptability. Over four years, the donated vehicle is redesigned and validated in CAD, before being completely disassembled to implement new powertrain, centerstack, control, and suspension components. EcoCAR is the heart of American automotive ingenuity and innovation and is the ultimate training ground for minting future automotive leaders.
Entering the final year of the competition, we are looking for motivated EE students for our electrical and controls teams, to continue the work we have done and help us turn our Camaro into the next generation plug-in hybrid electric vehicle!
