HAN Formula Student

If you want to excel as an Automotive student, HFS is the right choice for you. We are an international racing team that develops a new car every year to learn and grow as much and as fast as possible. And the most important Automotive companies in the world are noticing the Formula Student racing series as they are the main sponsors to all Formula SAE events (Formula Society of Automotive Engineers), such as Volkswagen AG, Daimler, Bosch, Audi, Opel, Porsche and many more.

Our team consists of 34 highly motivated students that are excited to come up with new ideas, learn by doing and practice engineering and management skills to gain the best experience in their field of study.
Working at the HAN Formula Student team means that you will try your hardest, will not give up and learn to work in an international team, which will pay off by the interest Formula Student members get from automotive companies when they’ve been graduated. We have many internship opportunities and we think you should grab your chance!
