Welcome to Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology’s EcoCAR 2 website.
Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology is competing in EcoCAR 2 which is a three-year student engineering competition. Fifteen universities throughout North America participate in this collegiate competition. The teams are working to design & implement a more efficient powertrain into a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu, donated by General Motors. The students are gaining real-world experience in not only engineering, but communication and business.
The Rose-Hulman team is predominantly an undergraduate multidisciplinary team of students focused on advanced vehicle powertrain development. Participating in DOE/GM advanced vehicle technology completions since 2005, including Challenge X: Crossover to Sustainable Mobility and EcoCAR: The Next Challenge, the team utilizes powertrain electrification to decrease petroleum consumption and emissions generation of production GM vehicles while maintaining or exceeding consumer satisfaction in performance, utility, and safety.
