Demonstrate and prove both your creativity and engineering skills!

Formula Student is one of the world's biggest academic competitions. Every year, more than 600 student teams from universities all over the world competing with their self-constructed race cars.

Entrants will compete to design, build and race a formula style single seater electric racing car – providing students with invaluable real-world project experience as they begin their engineering career. The winner is not necessarily the team with the fastest car, but the one with the best package regarding construction, performance, financial planning, sales arguments and sustainability.
