A 16-member team of Swiss university students—led by Dr. Josef Mayr, Marco Job and Dominic Schmid—may have designed the future of electric motorcycles, even if its project never gets off the ground. With a reported 250-mile range, we say Yes, please, to the Ethec.
The Ethec e-cruiser project was developed by 13 mechanical engineering students and one electrical engineering student from ETH Zurich, plus two industrial design students from the Zurich University of the Arts. ETH Zurich—a science, technology, engineering and mathematics STEM university in the city of Zürich, Switzerland—focuses on providing students an opportunity to completely development a product, from the first draft to the technical engineering, design, production and marketing.Students manage the whole process alone. They gain the knowledge and confidence through dialogue with experts from the industry, student advisors and professors, self-study and traditional lectures.
