Campus: Urbana-Champaign


Lectures and discussions relating to new areas of interest. Course Information: May be repeated in the same or separate terms for unlimited hours if topics vary. See class schedule for topics and prerequisites.

Special Instructions:

The course objective is to show students early in their curriculum that a multidisciplinary understanding is essential to create a complex system. UIUC's own Solar Car "Argo" will be the example. The course will cover high-level aspects of the design, construction, analysis, and economics of solar-powered electric vehicles. Understanding the business and operations side of running a solar car team will embolden students as they start putting the hat of an entrepreneur. Topics will bridge a variety of engineering disciplines integrated together with business to present a cohesive overview highlighting complexities of solar-powered vehicles. Students are expected to gain hands-on experience working with the Solar Car Team to build the next solar car. In-class presentations will provide a platform to individuals to convey ideas and contributions to a broad set of multidisciplinary audience.
