CU-ICAR’s focus is on the needs of industry – in the areas of workforce and innovation. It is an environment of collaboration that others desire to emulate. With all the changes facing the automotive industry today, I am grateful for the vision for emphasizing “systems integration” in the automotive engineering program. A total vehicle systems experience and education is increasingly important to industry, and we’re prepared to meet these challenges head-on.

CU-ICAR and the Department of Automotive Engineering are right in the middle of all of this and continue to put South Carolina on the global map as a key player in this transformation.
