Area of interest in Formula Student

Read through the sub-section descriptions below and decide where you'd like to fit in to the team! You should keep in mind that every role requires a lot of time and commitment. We look for students who have a passion for motorsport and a willingness to learn.

Aerodynamics Be part of the team responsible for bodywork design and manufacture. The bodywork sets the style of the car and so team members must consider both form and function. Accessibility to other parts on the car such as the pedal box must be considered. You should have an interest in composite materials.

Chassis & Suspension You should have an interest in vehicle and tyre dynamics if applying for this role. Knowledge in these areas is preferable. Knowledge of Abaqus, MATLAB, Susprog3D and/or OptimumG packages is also preferable. This team is responsible for the design of the car's frame, the driver environment and the suspension system.

Unsprung Mass You will be working as part of a team to design the unsprung mass of the vehicle (i.e. uprights, braking system, hubs, etc.). Knowledge in manufacturing techniques and FEA is preferable. You should have interests in manufacturing, materials and FEA.

Drivetrain You will be working as part of a team who are responsible for design, manufacturing and sourcing of drivetrain components (i.e. driveshafts, differential, sprocket, chain, etc.). You should have an interest in these components as well as in manufacturing techniques. Again, knowledge in manufacturing techniques and FEA is preferable.
Powertrain You will be part of a team who are responsible for the design, manufacturing and sourcing of the powertrain system (i.e. intake, engine, exhaust, fueling, cooling, throttle). You should have an interest in the workings of an internal combustion engine. A good knowledge in this area is preferable. Internal Flow CFD knowledge is also preferable.

Electronics As a member of the electronics team you will be involved in the design and manufacture of electronic components for the car. Fields within the team range from embedded system design to software to mechanical fittings and packaging solutions. Applicants should have knowledge in electronics and wiring experience is beneficial but not essential.
Sponsorship & Public Relations The Sponsorship and Logistics team are responsible for a variety of key tasks within UGRacing. The team are primarily relied upon to obtain supporting partners, as well to maintain relationships with continuing partners. To do this the team produces marketing material, such as a Sponsorship Pack, newsletters, and social media content, as well as contacting companies directly to request support. The team are also responsible for the organisation of publicity events, including the car’s launch, as well as the logistics of testing and competitions, such as travel and accommodation.
