So what is this EcoCar all about?
Well, it is a car that is based on hydrogen fuel cells. A fuel cell takes hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity. Usable electric power is produced as long as there is hydrogen supplied to the fuel cell. Fuel cell technology is a technology with promise because hydrogen fuel cells can be utilized in renewable energy, reduce pollution levels and be economical.
So if you are a student who aspires to build or design a prototype car of tomorrow, then you will want to join a Mechanical Engineering program at the University of Alberta. There are research and participation opportunities for students at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
Be part of tomorrow’s future and a part of Canada’s future, study at the University of Alberta. The university has scholarship opportunities for high-achieving international students.
