Every year, students from Lund University build a race car to compete in the world’s largest engineering competition, Formula Student. It is a competition that challenges every team to plan, design, analyze and manufacture a formula racing car. Every summer the car is put up to the test in one of the many Formula Student competitions. This summer we will participate in Formula Student UK and Formula Student Germany.
The purpose of the project is to give engineers further working experience by following through an entire production chain, from concept phase to finished product. Every new team has to work together to design and manufacture an as good car as possible. This features coming up with smart, sustainable solutions for the car design, manufacturing in an actual workshop and finally testing and adjusting the car. Parallel to the car manufacturing, the team prepares for the static events of the competition such as the business case.
