The Shell Eco-marathon competition, which has been held globally for 35 years, aims to broaden the horizons of young people in engineering, design and innovation. For the last 15 years, young people from Turkey have been allowed to participate in the competition. In the Shell Eco-marathon competition, high school and university students compete to travel the longest distance with the least fuel by using alternative energy sources in vehicles they designed and developed in line with their technical knowledge.
In 2020, due to the Covid-19, Shell Eco-marathon was held online for the first time. This year, at the Europe part of the tournament, Uludağ University UMAKIT team and Yıldız Technical University Team made us very proud by representing our country, ranked 1st at Safety, Technical Innovation and Circular Economy categories.
