Abstract:   (841 Views)
Shell Eco-marathon (SEM) is a worldwide project for engineering students to design, build and race a small single seater racing car. The teams have to cope with rules and restrictions which concern specifications of the car such frame, electric motor and safety. SEM encompasses all aspects of a business including research, design, manufacturing, testing, developing, management, and fund raising. Promoting personal and professional skills is becoming an issue of interest and major concern in university environments and this is being driven by the demands of business. In this paper the university teachers present the basic features of the international competition Eco-Shell Marathon and analyze the way this competition help to promote basic skills in the students. © 2016 The Authors.
