Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) is an annual intercollegiate racing series that challenges universities from around the world to design and build a single-seat race car. The competition is designed for students to apply the theory they learn in engineering and management courses—going beyond the classroom to implement solutions directly applicable to real-world problems.

There are three categories in the Formula SAE series: gas, hybrid and electric. Regardless of category, the teams operate like small-scale race car companies, taking ownership of all the engineering, fundraising, and management aspects of building and operating a race car.

Students who become part of the Formula SAE family get a taste of the automotive (and engineering) industry first-hand, and go on to lead their respective fields after college.
