Electrical Engineering Students Build Electric Battery Vehicle

Keep your eyes peeled and you might see Associate Professor Paul Frymier’s electrical engineering students cruising around campus in the electric car that they built, the Bug E Bev. While building the vehicle, Frymier’s students studied the sustainability of electric, hydrogen fuel cell, and gasoline-fueled vehicles. They discovered that both electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are more economic than a Toyota Camry. Both alternative vehicles also have less environmental impact than the Camry.
