UW Formula Motorsports Looking for EEs

What is Formula Motorsports?

UW Formula Motorsports is an exciting opportunity for students to apply what they have learned in the classroom by designing, building, and competing with an actual racecar. Over the course of one year, students are exposed to the entire engineering and production process. Students design in the Fall, manufacture during the Winter, and test in the Spring. In addition to engineering experience, students also gain administrative skills through fundraising and public relations.

As team members, students not only expand on their classroom learning, but also gain valuable experience that is directly applicable to the engineering industry. This type of experiential learning goes beyond the realm of usual coursework and provides a valuable education that prepares students for the challenges they will face in industry.

Announcing: Formula Electric

We are excited to announce that we are beginning development of a Formula Electric car, in addition to our gasoline-powered car. The Formula SAE and Formula Student competitions have recently added an Electric class to their competitions, and we feel that this is an excellent opportunity to move our team in an exciting direction. The UW Formula Motorsports team would like to extend an invitation to students of all majors, especially Electrical Engineering, to apply to join our team. We need your help to get our new car off to a fast start, and to lay the foundation for a successful program for years to come.
