We provide the Experience; You supply the Knowledge.

Volunteer Today!

Formula SAEĀ® is globally the most established educational motorsport competition organized by SAE International. Backed by industry and academia, the competition aims to provide real world experience to young engineers bridging the gap as they enter the workforce. Universities from across the globe accept the challenge to conceive, design, fabricate and compete with small formula-style race cars. The cars are built with a team effort over a period of eight to twelve months before reaching competitions where students are judged on their knowledge and vehicles are judged on performance.

As a Formula SAE Volunteer, your time and talent will add value to our competition. Come enjoy everything the competition has to offer by helping the teams (thousands of students) directly. For the 2021 competition, Formula SAE will operate using a Hybrid Model. Knowledge Events will host our traditional static events (Cost, Design and Presentation). Validation Events will host our traditional dynamic events and technical inspection process. Ready to signup?
