A student places his team's Advanced Energy Vehicle on the test track.The Advanced Energy Vehicle (AEV) Project is an energy and environment design-and-build project that challenges first-year engineering students to create an autonomous electric vehicle transportation system. These vehicles are the result of their semester-long design-build project, focusing on using advanced energy concepts and energy management to successfully address a real-world transportation scenario. 

The showcase event will include poster and/or video presentation by student teams, as well as a live competition to determine which AEV is the most innovative and creative, best engineered and best performing. The university community and public are welcome to attend. Visitors will have the opportunity to interact with student teams and Department of Engineering Education faculty and staff.
