Our Goals

  • Engaging Student Engineers

    Our team is entirely student run - all design, fabrication, planning, marketing, outreach, and racing is done by students. Students leave the team with hands on engineering know-how and experience with communicating, working in groups, and managing time effectively.

  • Producing Successful Racecars

    Formula Racing is excited to build on our 3rd place finish in the international Formula SAE Electric competition in 2014. For 2015, we plan to iterate on the previous year's powertrain with emphasis on system-level optimization. Additionally, the team plans to focus on lightness throughout the vehicle.

  • Supporting Our Community

    Our team engages with various local communities to help educate people on electric vehicles and the benefits of hands-on engineering challenges at the university level.
