Rice Electric Vehicle Team (REV) is a student-run organization that designs and constructs electric powered efficiency vehicles and enters local, national, and international efficiency car competitions.
This unique interdisciplinary group of students represents all academic years and over ten different majors at Rice University. Rice Undergraduates participate in a large-scale, multidisciplinary design project, enabling them to gain hands-on experience in topics outside their major and work alongside students from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds. This club also provides an opportunity to practice teamwork, leadership, collaboration, and professional skills.
The team participated in its first competition in Spring 2012 at the Shell Eco-Marathon Americas (SEMA), an international competition which scores vehicles based on their energy efficiency. The RSC Enterprise placed at an impressive second in the Solar Prototype category. The team is currently working on its fourth vehicle, which will be participating at the Shell Eco-Marathon Americas 2016. The Rice Electric Vehicle team hopes to continue serving as a tangible application and example of the engineering excellence at Rice University.
