EcoCAR 3 is an Advanced Vehicle Technology Competition sponsored by the US Department of Energy and General Motors. EcoCAR 3 challenges 16 North American Universities to reengineer a Chevrolet Camaro over four years to reduce its environmental impact while retaining the high performance characteristics of the vehicle.
Students participating in EcoCAR 3 gain valuable, hands-on, real-world experience with automotive engineering and development processes used in industry.
Regular team meetings are held on Tuesdays at the Center for Automotive Research at 6:00pm.
If you do not have transportation, pick-ups will be provided at the following locations and times on Tuesday nights:
Paterson Hall on 12 Ave. (South Campus) – 5:42pm
Archer House on Neil Ave. (North Campus) – 5:50pm

Anyone can come and join the OSU EcoCAR 3 team!
Not only do we need mechanical (ME) and electrical (ECE) engineers, but computer scientists (CSE), integrated systems engineers (ISEs), business students, design students, and communications and public relations students.
No experience is necessary to join the team.
