ChemE Car

The CSU ChemE Car team designs a car that runs on a chemical reaction to carry a given weight a certain distance. Our members are undergraduate students coming from multiple majors including computer science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and of course, chemical engineering. Fall 2018, meetings will usually be held on Thursdays at 5 pm in the Cassini Design Studio.

The team at the start of the run

 

The fuel cell runs off of hydrogen, which in turn produces a voltage to help power the car. Once the hydrogen runs out, the car will stop. We are in the process of designing new features for the car to get it ready for national competition in San Francisco this fall.

If you’re interested in joining the team or have other questions, email us chemecar.csu@gmail.com. We’re always looking for new members!
