The University of Alabama's EcoCAR Mobility Challenge team is setting the standard for the future of the automotive industry. For the past seven years of EcoCAR competition, our mission has been to prepare engineers and business leaders to address the nation’s future energy and transportation challenges. This mission starts with the high achieving students we currently have on the team, but it also carries into inspiring and training generations that will follow. By providing students with an opportunity to gain hands-on experience while implementing the latest technology on a brand-new Chevrolet Blazer, the UA EcoCAR team is unlike any other student group on campus. We pride ourselves in creating an environment that is welcoming and productive to all. With around 100 members, our diverse team attracts the best and brightest students interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). UA EcoCAR places a high emphasis on undergraduate involvement and allows our members to engage with one another on a variety of multidisciplinary teams.     

Year 4 Goals

All UA students are welcome to join the UA EcoCAR team! Students who wish to get involved with UA EcoCAR will need to complete a three-stage onboarding process. The first step is the completion of the General Onboarding Module, which provides students information about EcoCAR and the opportunities it offers.
