Photo description: The Faculty's solar car project, Sunswift, brings together students from all over the university to design, build and race a solar-powered vehicle. For engineering students working on the project, it's a rich addition to the normal curriculum. This year's vehicle is a radical departure from previous ones - it is designed to carry 2 people in relative comfort, and actually looks like a car. The students get to apply everything they learned in the classroom and then some - as well as racing success, the project produces some of the university's finest engineering graduates. Here, mechanical engineering PhD student Pujith - who led the car's aerodynamic design as an undergraduate - works on securing the steering column before a testing session.
