The University of Alabama’s EcoCAR team is setting the standard for the future of the automotive industry. Our mission is to prepare the next generation of engineers and business leaders to address the nation’s future energy and transportation challenges. EcoCAR gives students an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with leading edge automotive propulsion and autonomous technologies. By re-engineering a 2019 Chevrolet Blazer, the UA EcoCAR team is unlike any other student group on campus.
Our diverse team attracts the best and brightest students interested in the automotive industry. UA EcoCAR places a high emphasis on undergraduate involvement and allows our members to engage with one another on a variety of multidisciplinary teams.
During the third year of the EcoCAR Mobility Challenge, UA EcoCAR placed 1st overall out of 11 of North America’s top engineering schools. Now, as the team seeks to defend its title in the fourth and final year of the Mobility Challenge, we need your support!
A donation to UA EcoCAR will help the team make purchases needed to successfully complete the four-year vehicle development process. Much equipment is needed to ensure the vehicle is prepared for extensive testing and on-road certification. All supporting funds will go straight to the design, manufacturing, and testing being done, which will have a significant impact on the educational experience of the EcoCAR members.
Your donation can go towards purchasing a variety of electronic equipment such as wires, connectors, pins, tape, and soldering supplies.
With this level of support, the team can purchase 3D printer filament to make physical prototypes that are used on the vehicle.
This level donation allows for the team to purchase the necessary materials to machine driveline components.
You can help the team buy a 3D printer to make prototypes in a time and cost-efficient manner.
With a donation at this level, the team can purchase additional, more advanced equipment for data logging.
Support the team’s extensive testing efforts by donating towards advanced simulation hardware.
