Club - Electric Racing at Northeastern University
Founded in September 2016, Northeastern Formula SAE team oversees the design and building of a mini formula car. Our organization is completely student-run. The team consists of students from many different academic backgrounds within the university.
Our goal is to build a mini formula car that can not only pass the rigorous testing of the Formula SAE competition but to also compete with other leading institutions around the world in the international competition. The building process is highly focused on learning and gaining irreplaceable experience that will be brought to the professional industries we pursue.
