By Associated Engineering Press

University of Alabama students competing in a four-year national competition to design an energy-efficient high-performance vehicle were recognized as the “Team to Watch” after completing the first year of the competition.

The awards came as the top teams and presenters were recognized during the first-year EcoCAR 3 competition earlier this month in Seattle. The event allowed the teams to describe their efforts and projects during the first year, according to a release from UA.

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
