This was the first Indian team to finish the endurance event of the competition and also finished first in fuel efficiency. The team also enjoys the rare feat of displaying their student-made race car at Auto Expo 2012. After a successful international debut, the team has plans to develop a series hybrid vehicle and participate in the Formula Student UK 2013.

The Student team of IIT Roorkee which participates in Formula SAE competitions, the largest Engineering Competition in the world, by designing, developing and fabricating an open wheel Formula style Race Car. The team made its debut in 2011 by participating in FSAE-Australasia held in Melbourne, Australia and currently the team is set to participate in Formula Student Germany, 2018 which will be the team’s 5th Project. The team has improved considerably to being the 1st Ranked Electric team in India as per the official FSAE Electric rankings.

IITRMS present students with the unique opportunity to develop their skills in technical designing, manufacturing, research work, team management, communication and business operations such as budgeting and market research in a real world environment. The unique combination of real world pressures to meet the deadlines, to design and fabricate a formula style race car and to make it compete at the international level requires a great deal of skills and helps the students build an overall personality while working under great deal of pressure. These skills are very important in the current corporate world and hence the formula students are highly sought after across the corporate sectors especially in engineering mobility industry.

To serve as breeding ground for India’s finest engineers and innovators who shall lead the nation’s technological advancements in the fields of hybrids and automobiles.

COMPETITIONS

Formula Society of Automotive Engineers (FSAE) is the world’s largest student engineering design competition which enables students with the unique opportunity to develop their skills in technical designing, manufacturing, research work, team management, communication and business operations such as budgeting and market research in a real world environment. The unique combination of real world pressures to meet the deadlines, design, fabricate, assemble, test a formula style race car and to make it compete at the international level requires a great deal of skills and helps the students build an overall personality while working under great deal of pressure.

These skills are very important in the current corporate world and hence the formula students are highly sought after across the corporate sectors especially in engineering mobility industry. The Car is judged on the basis of Static and Dynamic events. Static events consist of Design, Cost and Business Presentation which enables student to show their Planning, marketing strategies and overall design of the vehicle. The dynamic events consist of Skid-pad, Acceleration, Autocrosss, Efficiency and Endurance. This provides teams to directly compete with the design and performance.
