Originally started by the Society of Automotive Engineers student branch at the University of Texas, Austin, in 1980, the Formula SAE competition now sees over 500 teams from universities worldwide, design, build and compete in their own Formula-style open-wheeled race car. The vehicles are judged on dynamics, design justifications, costing strategies and business presentation and apply rigorous STEM concepts to the build and design process.
Formula SAE (FSAE) or Formula Student (FS) is a challenge for universities across the world, to design, build and race an open-wheeled racing car each year. These vehicles are judged on dynamics, design justifications, costing strategies and business presentation & skills.
With over 500 teams worldwide and 17 difference races, the boundaries of innovation, technology and engineering are redefined constantly.
