JU World Solar Challenge: Project Management, Entrepreneurship, and Marketing - Part 2 (3) 15 Credits

Course Contents

The course provides the student with knowledge and skills in entrepreneurship and marketing by combining theory with entrepreneurial learning and action in the context of a unique real-life cross-disciplinary entrepreneurial venture and project. The project is called “World Solar Challenge” (WSC); it involves developing and constructing a competitive solar-powered electric car as well as planning and participating in the “World Solar Challenge 2017” – a solar car race through Australia.
