We provide the Experience; You supply the Knowledge. Volunteer Today!

Formula SAE is globally the most established educational motorsport competition organized by SAE International. Backed by industry and academia, the competition aims to provide real world experience to young engineers bringing the gap as they enter the workforce. Universities from across the globe accept the challenge to conceive, design, fabricate and compete with small formula-style race cars. The cars are built with a team effort over a period of eight to twelve months before reaching competitions where students are judged on their knowledge and vehicles are judged on performance.
