Fan of formula 1? I think I have something for you here...

Rev your engines, future engineers! The Formula Student (FSAE) competition, organized by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, is not just a race but a call to innovate, design, and accelerate. It's where your theoretical knowledge meets practical application, where your designs hit the real road, and where your engineering skills are truly tested.

Key Information

  • Challenge Organizer: Institution of Mechanical Engineers
  • Eligible Candidates: Students worldwide
  • Region of Challenge: Global
  • Online/In Person: In Person

Challenge Focus, Goal, and Topic

FSAE isnโ€™t just about speed; itโ€™s about smart, innovative, and efficient design. Teams of university students are tasked with designing and building a single-seat racing car, which they will then race in a series of static and dynamic events. These events test their engineering, design, and business skills, covering every aspect from the car's acceleration to the team's business acumen, ensuring a holistic, real-world engineering experience.

Prizes and Recognition

The competition is highly recognized in the industry, providing students with a platform to showcase their skills to potential employers in the engineering field (and not only as the management and finance is also pretty important).

The real prize? A fast-track (pun intended) to a career in engineering, with many participants securing job offers as a direct result of their involvement.

How Does the Challenge Work

The competition is structured in various static and dynamic events. Static events involve presenting the team and their car to judges in a series of presentations covering engineering, cost, and business elements. Dynamic events, held on the track, test the cars in action, covering aspects like acceleration, skid pad, sprint, and endurance, ensuring the designs are robust, reliable, and fast.
