Southwest Research Institute (SwRI)

Southwest Research Institute

While students are making final adjustments to their vehicles at this year’s Shell Eco-marathon Americas, the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), along with the competition’s technical team, are guiding students as they solve technical issues, so the vehicles will perform at their best when rubber meets the road.  

SwRI, a research and engineering institute that employs more than 3,200 people, isn’t only going to provide technical guidance; the non-profit organization will also introduce students to career opportunities at SwRI.  

Shell, once again, asked SwRI to join the competition’s technical team to provide input and help measure the energy efficiency of electric vehicles.
