Formula Hybrid+Electric is an annual interdisciplinary student engineering and design challenge that is part of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Collegiate Design Series.
Throughout the academic year, students design and build a single-seat, open-wheel race car that conforms to a specific set of rules. The competition itself takes place each spring and consists of a series of events categorized as “dynamic” and “static”. Dynamic events include tests of the vehicle’s performance in braking, acceleration, rollover stability, handling, and endurance. Static events include a presentation of the vehicle’s engineering & design, as well as a presentation of the team’s project management over the competition year.
