DJS Helios is the official electric solar car team from Dwarkadas. J. Sanghvi College of Engineering, Mumbai. The team consists of a mix of 45 students from different departments. We have been Asia's top solar car team and is among the best teams in the world. It all began in 2016 as a final year project by few daring fourth-year engineering students and has blossomed into Mumbai's first student-run, non-profit organization that designs and manufactures solar-powered vehicles. We take pride in the fact that we are the first team ever holding both ESVC and IASC Champions title at the same time.
The idea of a better future starts with an initiative and we are doing our bit. The progeny of the founding team envisioned a world powered by green energy where the use of renewable resources would reduce dependency on exhaustible ones. Keeping that in mind our vision for the team is:
- To introduce passionate engineers to the world of solar energy & Its applications in the automotive sector
- To Design & Fabricate a highly efficient, fully autonomous & eco-friendly electric Solar Vehicle
- To be vocal advocates of renewable energy and technology and to promote its use
- To make a car that is economically sound and environmentally sustainable
