Formula Student ASU Team 2011

What is Formula Students?
Formula Student (FS) is a breeding ground for world class engineers. It challenges university students from around the world to design and build a single-seat racing car, which is then put to the test at the famous Silverstone Circuit. Formula Student is the biggest and best of its kind in Europe. Run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), in partnership with various well known companies in the industry, it promotes careers and excellence in engineering, by challenging university students to design, build, develop, market and compete as a team with a small single seat racing car. Its key aims are to inspire the next generation and address the skills shortage in engineering. The way FS achieves this is by providing crucial practical experience and transferable skills for use in a diverse range of industries. For the purpose of the competition, the students are to assume that a manufacturing firm has engaged them to produce a prototype car for evaluation. The intended sales market is the non professional weekend autocross or sprint racer. Therefore, the car must have very high performance in terms of its acceleration, braking, and handling qualities. The car must be low in cost, easy to maintain, and reliable. In addition, the car's marketability is enhanced by other factors such as aesthetics, comfort and use of common parts. The challenge to the team is to design and fabricate a prototype car that best meets these objectives. Each design is compared and judged with other competing designs to determine the best overall car.

Why get involved?
For Students: Young engineering students and graduates are exposed to marketing, time management, project management, team building, budgeting, presentation skills, and other management issues. Through Formula Student, they develop experience, skills and professionalism as “hands on” engineers, with a keen awareness of the often competing pressures of performance, cost, safety, reliability and regulatory compliance. The benefit to students is immense and is good experience for newly qualified engineers preparing to enter a career in motor sport, the automotive industry or many other areas of high performance engineering. For Companies: Companies involved with Formula Student through sponsorship get face to face access to these highly skilled young engineers, who could be viewed both as potential recruits and as potential future customers. Formula Student provides opportunities in brand awareness and sales, so whether you are an OEM, Tier 1 supplier, or SME, there are real business benefits to be gained!
