See what other Engineering Senior Design projects that CU Denver students are working on in the College of Engineering and Applied Science.

*Miles per Gallon of Gasoline Equivalent (MPGe) value is based on the EPA conversion factor where,
1 kWh = 3,412 Btu
1 gallon of gasoline = 115,000 Btu
Therefore, 1 gallon of gasoline = 33.7 kWh.
