UMP SAE Team: Shell Eco-marathon

[Notes: You may skip the Introduction part and go for Vacancies part for the application]

UMP SAE Team is established directly from SAE-UMP Chapter to participate in Shell Eco-marathon Asia race that will be held on 8-10 July 2009 at Sepang International Circuit. The purpose of this race is to build a car from scratch and can run as long as it can by only using 1 litre of fuel. UMP SAE Team will be participating in Urban Concept car. The competition is quite similar to Perodua Eco-challenge, but the difference is we have to build a car ourselves.

Build a car that can run as far as it can by using 1 litre of fuel.

Brings UMP to be known to the global level of automotive industry.
