UWAFT is a student design team based out of University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University. We compete in the EcoCAR Mobility Challenge, a four-year competition between 12 North American universities. We are transforming a 2019 Chevrolet Blazer RS into an advanced carsharing vehicle. We will be designing and installing a hybrid powertrain for better fuel economy, onboard sensors for self-driving capabilities, wireless communication for innovative connected user features and so much more!


UWAFT was established in 1996 as one of only a few design teams in the University of Waterloo. Originally located in a small garage in the university’s physics building, a group of engineering students wanted to make a difference in vehicle design and encourage sustainable practices. At UWAFT we continuously break new boundaries in the field of of transportation through innovation, technology, and active student engagement. 

Involvement with Advanced Vehicle Technology Competitions


Without our sponsors, we would not be able to achieve the goals we set for ourselves.
