Sponsors


The team wishes a sincere "thank you" to all of our sponsors, large and small, who have donated their valuable time, resources, knowledge, and money to support the valuable educational undertaking the solar vehicle project represents. Through your generosity, we have been able to provide real world, hands-on experience with the complete product development process to interdisciplinary teams of undergraduates. We know our students benefit from the experience.
