A team of students from BML Munjal University has designed an ‘EcoKart’, a low budget passenger electrical cart on the occasion of World Environment Day. The vehicle designed runs on electrical power and has the ability to reach up to a top speed of 60 km/hour. According to the university, the vehicle is unique as it is eco-friendly in nature and helps in saving fuel.
The EcoKart developed is a vital part of the university’s strategy to emphasise hands-on and practical learning to enhance students’ learning experience through solving real-world challenges that impact daily lives. These projects are a part of BML Munjal University’s initiative to test innovative technologies and ideas to develop viable solutions that can be deployed at larger scales. The idea is a part of the initiative to design, build, and implement solutions that address sustainability issues, and are energy efficient and environment friendly.
Sharing his thoughts on this occasion, Akshay Munjal, President of BML Munjal University said, “This year’s theme is Connecting People to nature and it invites you to think about how we are part of nature and how intimately we depend on it. Although individual decisions may seem small in the face of global threats and trends, when billions of people join forces in common purpose, we can make a tremendous difference. Change can happen, but change should not happen only externally, it should happen internally too. This is important for the future of our planet. At BMU, we not only maintain the campus with this consciousness, but ensure that the students too imbibe this feeling of responsibility towards their planet”
The university renewed its focus towards go green and took energy efficiency measures and projects as a part of their ‘integrated campus sustainability initiative’. The University also has a course on Sustainability called Environmental Studies under which students are exposed to study nature and its resources and understand other related problems.
