Formula Student is an international competition, which promotes excellence in engineering, giving the students a chance to apply the theory studied at the University, improve their skills and pursuit the maximum performance in a competition environment.
The teams must design, manufacture and assemble a Formula Student race car which is compliance with the rules, able to pass the technical inspection and be competitive at the track.
Also, this competition covers everything related to the business world and marketing by designing a business plan focused on the manufacturing and bringing a race car to the market.
Presentation, strategy, organization, methodology, innovation and research merge together for one goal: testing the teams out off the track.
Accuracy, speed, driving skills, synchronization and determination join together to go beyond the limits of the team and the prototype.
