From the Co-Editor-in-Chiefs - JinWoo Ahn and Sheldon Williamson

Dear Readers,  

Hope you and your families are safe during these trying times! We certainly hope that this situation ends soon and that we do not have any more uncertain times ahead of us.  

We would like to welcome you to another enticing issue of the IEEE TEC Newsletter. In this issue, we take the opportunity to share with you, why we think joining a student competition team is a prodigious step towards a successful career in transportation electrification and e-mobility. This issue specifically covers articles from teams from across the globe and their success stories through their respective Formula Student competitions.  

The articles in this issue cover a wide variety of aspects and motivational thoughts of the students. However, almost all articles zeroed in on the fact that being on a diverse team, such as a Formula Student team, made the students recognize the responsibility of facing adversity and coming up with “out-of-the-box” solutions. Some articles pointed to the fact that the hands-on experience the team members acquired simply by getting their hands dirty was critical in their growth as both individuals and as a team. The majority of the teams also pointed towards personal motivation and the drive to succeed as key factors for success. Finally, all teams were most motivated to succeed due to key industry involvement and the recognition that they earned for their universities as well as for themselves.  

On behalf of the Editorial Board, we would like to thank our contributors for their efforts and hope our readers continue to find useful and interesting information in the IEEE TEC Newsletter. We encourage all our readers to consider submitting their quality work to the Newsletter. We would be delighted to review your original article. For any queries and/or suggestions, please reach out to the IEEE TEC’s “most efficient” Project Manager, Alicia Tomaszewski (a.tomaszewski@ieee.org). Alicia almost always responds promptly to your queries.  

Stay Safe & Best Wishes,
