The NJIT Solar Car Team is a student-run organization formed in the spring of 2017. The team is an interdisciplinary, project-based learning community which seeks to provide undergraduate and graduate students of all majors in all departments with real-world experience in systems engineering.
In order to prepare our students to be the innovators of tomorrow, our team emphasizes sustainable energy, taking initiative, providing experience for future career preparation, and the development of technical and soft skills in engineering, research, design, and business.
The NJIT Solar Car Team will compete with other collegiate teams and their electric vehicles in the summer of 2018 in their first competition called “The American Solar Challenge,” a 2,000 mile cross-country time/distance rally event.
The NJIT Solar Car Team is an entirely student-run organization whose goal is to complete the research, design, and construction of NJIT’s first ever full-size, solar-powered electric vehicle. Formed in the spring of 2017, the team offers an interdisciplinary, project-based learning community which seeks to provide students with real-world experience in systems engineering.
The NJIT Solar Car team consists of 6 subteams each specializing in their own manner.
Our team leaders and project managers are confident in their abilities to guide our organization to success.
