About Us

Our organization seeks to develop and promote the practical application of alternative energy while providing a real-world design experience for engineering students at the University of Missouri. To this end, our organization designs, manufactures, and races an automobile powered by hydrogen gas against vehicles from other universities both in the U.S. and around the world.

Mizzou Hydrogen Cars are designed and built by students from the University of Missouri

Taking skills learned in class, team members have the chance to apply their studies. Here are just some of the student lead projects that we have accomplished:

  • Mechanical engineers designed and fabricated the body, suspension, steering, and other elements
  • Chemical engineers have researched fuel cells and built the fuel system
  • Electrical engineers built our power distribution and telemetry systems

All of our engineers work across departments to bring TigerGen IV to life. This allows them to learn from each other and gain skills outside of their area of study.

In addition, our team is active in promoting fuel cell technology around our extended community, at venues that encourage higher education, and green energy. In this way, our team can expand on the knowledge gained from six generations of solar car teams and three generations of hydrogen teams. We use it to build and promote technologies that have the ability to lead us to a sustainable future. We are open to all majors, graduate and undergraduate students; team members devise business plans, fundraise, and manage their own publicity.

Building a hydrogen car is an expensive task. Thanks to the sponsors above, we were able to successfully convert a Chevy S10 to an all electric vehicle. Please consider joining them in sponsoring our new competition build team as we dive head first into the FSAE Electric arena. Any help is greatly appreciated, whether it is in the form of products, services, or just cold hard cash. Any sponsorship inquiries can be sent to muengrecoracing@missouri.edu.

Thank you so much for your contribution!
