University of the Free State Eco-Vehicle Project

The University of the Free State (UFS) has initiated an eco‐vehicle project that aims to develop among senior undergraduate students the necessary graduate attributes needed to address issues of sustainable resources. Through the programme six sub‐teams of senior undergraduate students will work together in larger teams to build eco‐vehicles, powered by solar energy, with the aim of having five teams to compete in a race with the eco‐vehicles in February 2021. Neil Butcher and Associates is currently providing instructional design and materials development support by creating the programme framework and help guides for the six skills programmes.
