The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Informatics of the University of Maribor Wins the Finance Publishing Contest
Within the framework of the 20th national conference, the Days of Power Engineers, the Finance Publishing announced a traditional contest in the energy industry. The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Informatics of the University of Maribor took part in the contest introducing an electric racing car student project called “FERI e-formula” and became the winner, having gathered the greatest number of votes among the readers.
As part of the Days of Power Engineers, the Finance Publishing traditionally presents awards in different categories: Energy Efficient Company, Energy Efficient Project, and Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Development Project.
Competitive admission takes place in two stages. First, the commission, having considered all submitted projects, determines the finalists in each category. Then finalists go to the second round, where the selection is made in two categories. The commission and the readers choose the best project in each category (during the online voting).
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Informatics of the University of Maribor presented the “FERI e-formula” student project in the category “Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Development Project” and won the contest according to the number of collected votes. The project manager Prof. Dr. Jožef Ritonja received the award.
As noted on the site of the faculty, the project contributed to the growth of interest in engineering study programmes. In the course of the work, students mastered technical, organizational and economic knowledge. The project helps to realize that the essence of electromobility does not lie in subsidies and electric vehicles bought abroad, but in the development of the economy engaged in designing and production of electric cars and infrastructure equipment required for the use of such cars.
It should be noted that only 2 days remain before the deadline for submission of applications to the first round of admission to the University of Maribor. Please, contact 2TM in order to file documents in time and join a large family of students that master promising professions!
