Meet Vishal Naik from the University of Waterloo EcoCAR 3 Team

Did you know the University of Waterloo Alternative Fuels Team (UWAFT) has competed in Advanced Vehicle Technology Competitions (AVTCs) for 18 years? This team of students is now competing against 15 other universities in the latest AVTC series, EcoCAR 3. At the EcoCAR 3 Year One Competition in Seattle last month, this talented team took third place overall.

Meet one of the many impressive students from the UWAFT EcoCAR 3 team, Vishal Naik. Naik has been a member of UWAFT since EcoCar 2: Plugging In to the Future, where he had the opportunity to work with the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu. While he enjoyed the engineering aspect, he chose to assist the business team with project management. Being part of the team has helped Naik gain new skills and have fun in his last term of his undergraduate career! Learn more about Naik in the video below.
