Who is Chad?

       Chad Conway is a junior-engineering student at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. He is majoring in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. Beyond his course work Chad enjoys spending time as the overall team leader for the school's EcoCAR Project.  Through this project students at Rose-Hulman are competing against other top engineering colleges and universities to design and install an efficient power train into a Saturn Vue vehicle.

     Chad’s real passion is electric cars.  Starting in his sophomore year in high school he began working on electric car projects.  By his junior year he had completely rebuilt a 1980 electric Comuta-Car that he drives as his primary means of transportation to this day.  This practical experience leads him to believe that electric drive is the most efficient and practical alternative to internal combustion engines.  Chad is keeping well informed of developments in battery technology and dreams of a day when super capacitors will replace chemical energy storage.  Chad’s career goal is to work with an automotive design team, engineering the world’s best electric vehicles.

     Chad’s experience includes a summer internships at Tesla Motors and the MIT Media Lab.  At Tesla, Chad took ideas through the engineering design process and finished with production parts that were key parts in a Tesla battery pack.  Additionally, he managed and organized the prototype battery pack builds.  At MIT Chad was fortunate to assist the Smart Cities Group designing the City Car.  He is honored at having achieved the rank of Eagle Scout and proud of the memorable project that resulted from this effort.

      Chad is a team player that excels when challenged and looks forward to making the world a better place through engineering.
