My name is Speed, sustainable Speed!

General description

The aim of this course is to introduce European students the importance of the transport world, in terms of speed and sustainability. Being in a world where borders fall faster and faster, we all are conscious that travel is a cornerstone in many areas.

We want to provide some general and comprehensive idea in this field, through lessons with teachers, Company visits and a short Engineering Competition.

And above all we want to stimulate interest and curiosity about this topic. We will compare the economic costs and time of the various means of transport. Results and comments will be included in a report.
