Course Content

The students have the task of developing a concept for a model car and implementing it so that the vehicle can cover a distance as precisely as possible. The basic requirement is that the car is driven on the basis of a chemical reaction. The work is done in teams of 3-7 students over a year beginning in the winter semester. The team has the task of organizing its own work. The group reports at least monthly on the results achieved and the work planned. The work ends with a final presentation of the created car at the Chemcar competition, an event organized by Processnet (an initiative of Dechema and VDI/GVC), where the car is tested for precision. The work will be judged by a jury consisting of company representatives. Furthermore, the team will give a presentation at the Dortmunder Hochschultage
