Learn more: EVU Study Guide

Every EVU mini-course is intended to stand on its own and will provide you with useful information about a targeted EV topic. Our intent is to provide enough information to allow you to understand various aspects of EVs, but not so much that we discourage non-technical students from participating. We recognize that some students may have additional interest in a specific topic and therefore want to delve more deeply into the subject matter.
