Team Spotlight Video: Penn State University

This week’s Team Spotlight Video highlights the Penn State EcoCAR team!

Take a look at the video below to see how designing their EcoCAR vehicle has prepared Penn State team members for careers in automotive engineering.

Exposure to General Motors’ (GM) vehicle development process, as well as hands-on experience in vehicle design and integration, has given these students unparalleled training in their field. According to GM mentor Paul Shoytush, “If you want to work in the automotive industry, this is the best way to gain experience and to show the automotive industry what you can do.”

The Penn State vehicle, which uses a series architecture that incorporates B20 fuel into a diesel engine, took home 3rd place at the EcoCAR Year Two Finals, and we can’t wait to see how the team does in Year Three!
