UWE Formula Student Aims
What makes us different?
Our Achievements to Date:
UWE Formula Student compromises of 70 students from all disciplines within the University; from Mechanical, Automotive and Aerospace Engineering through to Business and Marketing, Media and IT. These fields are all tied together by a faculty adviser from the university providing a crucial link between our team, our faculty and The Institute of Mechanical Engineers.
Formula Student provides a great opportunity for students to put what they have learned in their degree into real world practice, due to the way formula student is judged not just on the design and engineering behind the car but in the business, marketing and costing side of the project as well. Becoming part of Formula Student also greatly improves all of the student’s CVs and is highly respected by employers throughout industry.
UWE Formula Student differs from a majority of the Formula Student teams where succession planning is placed incredibly high on our team development plan. We accept first year degree and foundation members, with the vision to support and guide them through the process with a view for them to take on senior team leader positions as early on as their second year of study. This way of working teaches vital management skills to team leaders, as well as ensuring that all members are invested in and gain structured development throughout their time in the Team.
