The Colorado State University Vehicle Innovation Team has continuously worked with AVTC’s since 1988, have has been successful in getting over 200 students to graduate from multiple departments. Colorado State University as a whole is a land-grant institution and a Carnegie Doctoral/Research University-Extensive established in 1870 and holds over 25,000 undergraduate and 7,000 graduate students. The university’s goal is to provide all students with a world-class education that encompasses interdisciplinary collaboration in order to solve extensive world problems. Colorado State was a part of the EcoCAR 3 competition in order to embrace their mission as a world-class university, in which EcoCAR3 had done by provided students with an opportunity to lead the world in innovation in research in the field of transportation. By being one of the most sustainable universities in the nation, CSU continues to look for innovative solutions to problems that arise every day. CSU thus decided to continue with the EcoCAR mobility challenge for a fourth year, hoping to reach the same goals as before of creating innovative solutions to common world problems, and contributing to the mission statement of the university through sustainable action and construction. As in the EcoCAR 3 competition, the CSU Vehicle Innovation Team this year hopes to follow the same morality as last year, by defining a solution to sustainable problems without compromising the ideals and expectations of the US consumer.
