As the pinnacle project of our electrical and computer engineering curriculum at Lafayette College, we plan to apply what we have learned over the years to complete the design and construction of a competition standard electric vehicle. In addition to completing what is now approaching a 5-year long effort, we hope that this project will serve as a both a learning experience for us, the students, and the department faculty. We believe that fully electric vehicles are relevant to modern technology and that this project will offer us the ability to exercise our engineering and innovative abilities.
