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 strong performance in the international Formula SAE Electric competition in 2018. For 2019, we plan to iterate on many of the previous year's systems with an emphasis on system-level optimization. Additionally, the team plans to focus on weight reduction 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.
