What are SAE CDS Programs?
Formula SAE Electric is a design and engineering challenge for university students designed and run by the Society of Automotive Engineers. The goal of the competition is to design and build an open-wheel, single-seat, electric racecar conforming to a stringent set of rules, which emphasize drivetrain innovation, safety, and energy efficiency in a high-performance application.
Our team’s cost, design, and strategic positioning decisions are made to take into account the interests and requirements of a weekend autocross racer. These decisons are then presented to a panel of industry professionals in the business presentation.
Please feel free to visit the competition’s website to learn more.
Where does our team come in?
Our group is composed of approximately 25 extremely dedicated UC Davis mechanical and electrical engineering students. We come from diverse interests and backgrounds but are united by a passion for engineering, and of course, racing.
