The final Fall Workshop of the EcoCAR 2 series is officially underway at MathWorks’ headquarters in Natick, MA!
The workshop, which began Wednesday evening with student registration, features a variety of training sessions for EcoCAR 2 teams. These training sessions will help prepare teams for the Year Three deliverables and will provide teams the understanding and knowledge to refine their plug-in hybrid electric vehicles throughout Year Three.
After an extensive day of training sessions from competition-level sponsors, students attended the Sponsor Social Networking and Recruiting event. EcoCAR 2 students seeking full-time, internship, or co-op positions were able to network and connect with sponsors throughout the evening. This year, more than 15 sponsors exhibited at the event, including General Motors, MathWorks, Clean Cities, dSPACE, Freescale, AVL Powertrain Engineering, TRC, ETAS, Magna, Bosch, Siemens, Vector, GKN Driveline, QNX Systems, and Proterra.
Now, students are ready for Day 2 of the workshop, which includes special video training, project management courses, and one-on-one sessions with sponsors.
