We can guarantee you’ve never seen anything quite like Formula SAE-A – a competition, now in its 20th year, where university students design, build and compete in their very own Formula-style open-wheeled racing car.
Formula SAE-A has been embraced by Universities since its 2000 inception and forms part of the 12-month curriculum program. Each December, thousands of students, volunteers and spectators get to experience around 35 university teams pitting their machines head-to-head in this educational program. And the secret’s out. The event is now also attracting teams from the UK, Germany, India, Japan, New Zealand and USA.
The STEMs approach of applying rigorous academic concepts and pairing that with real-world experience, enables students to make the connection between education, community and the workplace.
Formula SAE-A graduates are in huge demand. Problem-solving and developing quick and cost-effective solutions on the go are what industry is seeking in the next-generation STEMs workforce.
Team members are headhunted for their unique skill sets in engineering, management, leadership, teamwork, marketing and finance, each honed to perfection in this real-life commercial project.
Through Formula SAE-A we are creating the next innovators, superstars and leaders of tomorrow’s mobility and transport technologies sector. And by making the event known to every industry sector, we’re introducing these young engineers to prospective employers who need team members that can ‘hit the ground running’ from day one of their careers.
Without the generous support from our corporate partners, this event would not be viable. There is a partnership level to suit everyone – Naming Rights, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Industry Supporter and Friends of Formula.
We welcome your involvement and look forward to partnering with you on every single lap of this unique journey.
Secretary and CEO
