LiU Formula Student is a non-profit student association at Linköping University. Every year we develop and design a competition race car, which we afterwards take to Formula Student competitions all over Europe to compete against other universities from all around the globe. To achieve this, we cooperate closely with local industries as well as Linköping University. Right now we consist of about 100 students, both at bachelor level as well as master level, from several different programs and grades.
What is Formula Student?
Formula Student is a student design competition organized by SAE International (Society of Automotive Engineers). Starting as a small event with eleven teams in 1979, it is now the world’s biggest product development competition. With 500 teams competing in more than fourteen competitions all over the world. The purpose of Formula Student is to design, construct and manufacture an efficient high-performance racing vehicle from scratch. As an addition to this, 1000 units should be fictively produced. Therefore taking the economic parameters of production, logistics, etc. in consideration is of vital importance as well.
Competitions are divided in several different events. In addition to performance, driveability and durability also the environmental perspective, safety, efficiency and smart solutions are evaluated. If you want to learn more about the competition, click here!
