About

Design, build and test a highly efficient battery electric vehicle for competing in the Shell Eco-Marathon.

The University of Strathclyde Eco-Vehicle team has been established since 2016. Each year the team designs, builds, tests and competes a battery electric prototype vehicle to compete in the European Shell Eco-Marathon.(https://www.makethefuture.shell/en-gb/shell-eco-marathon)

The team is completely student led therefore students do everything from team management and sourcing sponsorships to manufacturing and designing the car. There is opportunity to gain experience in different areas and meet students from all engineering courses and even some outside of engineering. USEV attend a number of events throughout the year which provide opportunity for networking. The competition itself changes location within Europe so there's opportunity for travel.
