Charlie Takla Visits the Grand Rapids Tech Expo

Wayne State University’s EcoCAR 2 EcoCAR2 team member Charlie Takla, attended the 2012 Grand Rapids Automotive Parts Manufacturer's Tech Expo on February 10th and 11th. Nearly 80 prestigious automotive supply companies traveled to showcase new product offerings, along with their new consumer and vehicle technologies.
During the expo, Takla was able to connect with several companies in particular that were very excited to hear about the WSU Hybrid Warriors.

While networking is still taking place, expectations are good and hopes are high for sponsorship involvement with the team.
"The feedback that I got from these firms was very positive," said Takla. "These companies are also happy to hear that EcoCAR2's main objective is to educate the next generation of engineering students intending to work in the automotive industry.”

EcoCAR 2 is making big moves, and Wayne State’s team is working harder than ever to meet the challenge. At the end of the day, the students are winners already; the experiences created as part of the EcoCAR2 team allows students to think "outside the books.” These experiences are honing students' skills for a lifetime of professional growth and success.
