SAE International Announces 2013 Formula SAE Schedule

WARRENDALE, Pa., Sept. 14, 2012 - The 2013 Formula SAE schedule is available from SAE International.

The Formula SAE competition is organized around the concept that a fictional manufacturing company has contracted a design team to develop a small Formula-style prototype vehicle for the non-professional, weekend, competition market.

Formula teams face two separate challenges, first they must design, build and test a competitive vehicle and second, and no less daunting, they must manage their project to a successful conclusion.  The competition rules give students wide freedom to expand their engineering and project management skills while protecting the participants.

The 2013 dates and locations include:

 

Registration for all events opens on Oct. 1, 2012 at 10 a.m. For more information, visit http://students.sae.org/competitions/formulaseries/; call 1-724-772-8522 or email pr@sae.org.  

Formula SAE’s mission is to promote careers and excellence in engineering as it encompasses all aspects of the automotive industry including research, design, manufacturing, testing, developing, marketing, management and finances. Today, the competition has expanded and includes a number of international spin off events.

The SAE Foundation is the charitable arm of SAE International that strives to encourage and increase student participation and achievement in science, technology, engineering and math through educational programs, including A World In Motion® and the Collegiate Design Series™. SAE International is a global association of more than 133,000 engineers and related technical experts in the aerospace, automotive and commercial-vehicle industries. SAE International's core competencies are life-long learning and voluntary consensus standards development.
