Help us to succeed on the world stage

This year, I have been involved with the re-design of the datalogging and dashboard systems on our car. These systems are essential for validating our designs and for providing the driver with essential real-time information.

We look forward to competing in both Lincoln and Germany with your support!

Who Are We?

The University of Alberta Formula SAE team is a multidisciplinary team of undergraduate students under the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Alberta. Though the majority of our team is mechanical engineering students, we have students from electrical, computer, and materials engineering, business, industrial design, and various other faculties. 

The team competes each year in June in the Formula SAE Lincoln competition in Lincoln, NE, USA. In the 2018 season, we will also be attending the prestigious Formula Student Germany competition in Hockenheim, Germany for the first time since the 2013 season.


What Do We Do?

Formula SAE/Formula Student: Design; Build; Compete

FSAE/FS is an international collegiate competition where interdisciplinary teams of students design and build single-seater, formula style racecars and compete against their peers in an engineering competition and on track races. Being part of an FSAE team provides a tremendous opportunity for students to:

  • Experience working on a multidisciplinary team similar to projects teams in the professional world
  • Apply technical knowledge far above a classroom level to a real world design problem
  • Gain hands on experience building their own designs and an understanding of the challenges of moving from a design in an idealized Computer Aided Design (CAD) model to functioning final product in the real world                                       
  • Compete in high intensity, international competitions that are the highlight of our members' undergraduate careers
  • Learn manufacturing and fabrication techniques from basic assembly skills to advanced machining 








Competition

Formula SAE competitions are some of the most intense and multifaceted competitions available for undergraduate students. Teams must compete not only in on track races, but also in static events that test the teams' engineering expertise and business knowledge. To win an FSAE competition, teams must be truly well rounded and multidisciplinary. 

Dynamic Events

  • 75m Acceleration
  • Skid-pad        
  • Single lap autocross
  • 21km, 14 lap, autocross style endurance race
  • Efficiency event based on endurance fuel consumption

Static Events

  • Engineering Design Presentation
  • Business Presentation
  • Cost & manufacturing event             

Help Us Get There!

High performance vehicles require significant budgets, and we are a student project that is completely funded by the generosity of our sponsors. By contributing to this campaign, you can help give young professionals the experience of building a car from scratch and provide the means to implement the high performance systems that our team has worked so hard to design. Our goal is to raise $15 000 (approximately 25% of our total budget) through crowdfunding this year.

How will your donation be used?

    Funds raised will go towards:

  • Fabrication of vehicle sub-assemblies
    • Purchasing parts and raw materials to fabricate the 2018 car
  • Workshop overhead and equipment 
    • Purchasing equipment and consumables to keep the shop running and in safe condition
  • Travel & competition costs
    • Costs to transport the car to each competition, as well as entry fees


New Stretch Goal! 

  Published on Tuesday, Mar. 20, 2018 at 12:32 AM (MST)

Thank you so much to everyone who helped us reach our initial goal of $10,000 so quickly! We have been amazed by the generosity of everyone who has donated. 

With just under 2 weeks left in our campaign, we have set a stretch goal of $15,000.

We have also been hard at work building our car! Here is a sneak peak at our brand new turbo setup!
